The trouble is in this country that we no longer get the long summer days we used to get when the sun shone down from dusk to dawn. The summer of 76 leaps to mind the last time we had such a summer. I remember it well because it hadn't rained for months and water was on rationing with stand pipes in the streets, we arrived in Ilfracombe on the first day of our holiday and the sky's opened.
hi phil i also well remember the summer of 76...had a standpipe in our road for water..what a cracker it was though..thats if you could take the heat which i could in those days...much nicer today..just popped out the back and i could actually feel the heat from the sun...like i said earlier SB i think its on the turn now..mind you any improvement is better that what weve had since january...heard today that we had the coldest march since 1962...
