Re: Heat Wave coming this weekend

The Daily Mail will probably come out with some dire warnings about traffic being stuck on melting tarmac on the busiest weekend of the year, so far....

I think I better get down to the butchers then as it sounds like it's time to dust off the BBQ.

Cant beat cold beer and a BBQ on a sunny day! Thumbs Up

WeatherUnderground says about 25 Degrees up here, can't wait, I like hot days in the summer and cold snowy days in the winter... Smiley

 

Should be nice for mowing too, once my files get here to re-sharpen the blade on the ol' pushycutty...

@twocvbloke

Up here ? Where are you ? I would have thought you were closer to the South Coast assuming we include Scotland, if so it should be down here ?

+1 @twocvbloke for the Push Mower. There is something cathartic about using one of those. Sadly I no longer have mine and I have someone cut my grass, but I remember well the days when I did.

Re: Heat Wave coming this weekend

I've been on Sheffield Rail Station many times and heard people talk of getting the train up to London.

How does that work Huh

Incidentally I've just finished mowing the front and back grass and the 21 degrees C here is more than warm enough for me.

Yep, mine has self-propulsion, but, I only use that to nudge the thing along when it hits one of the many pits and dips in the grass, the rest of the time, it's all me-power... Grin

Friday evening will see me driving away from the Lakes on my way home, on the other side of the motorway the traffic will be at a full stop, I suspect some drivers will be more heated than the outside temperature stuck in that lot.

Last place you would want to be.

Not even if they paid me... Funny

 

(Doesn't mean I'm voting for the reds though, they're not exactly making sense in this reality!)

How does that work :huh


In England, in railway terminology, the up line is towards London whether it is to the South of London or not.
