Weight and Stuff Report – 21 June 2012

ShowersBack down today, which is a relief after yesterday’s alarming rise.

After a couple of quite nice and sunny days, it’s back to what seems to be normal for this year: more rain, much of it heavy, though with occasional breaks where it slows down a bit and it’s just a bit damp.

It used to be said that you could tell when summer came to Britain – that was when the rain got a bit warmer. This would appear to be about right, mutter. My lunchtime walk was limited to a quick visit to a shop or two while getting only slightly wet. What fun!

Today’s picture is a reminder of how different the weather was just a few days ago. This is the quite fancy tower of Newcastle Civic Centre:
