Forecasts by the Met office are always I find fairly generalised. here today it has been rather (for us) warm and slightly oppressive. We live betwixt Bridgwater and Taunton and I suppose are tucked in a tad. Anyway, the wee terracotta thermometer which is permanently in the shade popped a gasket today. For us this is pretty warm. Everything is relative; I just hope my buddy in Phoenix USA doesn’t see this post. They had according to him closer to 50C.
Here we are untouched and taken at 15.48 hours.
