The weather.... aaaarrrggghhhhh!!!!!

I know I shouldn't, because there are much worse things happening in the world than me not getting the weather I would like, but I'm sorry I just have to say it.

This rain is really starting to hack me off!

I mean it's July for goodness sake. Summer fairs and parties and outdoor events of all kinds are being washed out left, right and centre. It has rained every day this week. Don't even think about telling me climate change is a myth because this ain't how it used to be.

But do you want to know why I am really hacked off? Because a few weeks ago the BBC weather forecasters told us it is going to be a hot, dry summer. I mean these people are paid well for what they do, but I can look at the BBC site and see that my location is "Mostly Sunny" while outside my window it is raining and has been all morning.

Do you know what? I reckon I could do as well by looking at the Met Office data and then flipping a coin. In fact I might start a new site: Steve flips a coin dot com. Or better still, how about Flipping Weather dot com.

I used to feel well inclined towards weather forecasters, bringing us the good news cheerily or breaking the bad news to us gently. Nowadays when I see their smug televisual faces bringing me their latest flight of fancy I want to whack them in their warm front with a large isobar or two. That would create a depression. And quite possibly lift mine.

Finally, if the wet weather is getting you down too, take a look at this very funny video (brought to my attention by Dan over at AllThatComesWithIt), because sometimes it's just good to know you aren't the only sucker suffering.

They actually got it spot on. It is beautiful Seattle.

Hope it clears up for you soon.
