Only two of us in the house though.


Mine was too, metered before moving here. It's all those tourists coming down here... OTOH council tax is 1/3 of what it was.

Touring on a bicycle is a great way to explore and appreciate the countryside and towns you pass through. Make a difference...

SE Cornwall ditto.

Never ever seen it so dry here. Not just hot sunshine - had that before in May - 2010 was a hot May - but we have a dry atmosphere and it's desiccating everything out.

Now's your chance to install a bottling plant and sell "Cully Spring" to all those tourists. :lol:
At the last count:- Peugeot 531 pro, Dawes Discovery Tandem, Dawes Kingpin, Raleigh 20, Falcon K2 MTB dropped bar tourer, Longstaff trike conversion on a Falcon corsa. :D

Too many trees around my garden, they make great wind blockers...
Mind you they also provide shade, so there's always somewhere to go.
Swings and roundabouts.

If the dry weather keeps up I'm not sure how many will die. Lost 3 or 4 in the last drought, there's a silver birch on my front lawn that barely recovered last time and isn't looking great.
30 feet from it though is a fairly large oak that's looking pretty happy - must have deep roots.

This awful sunny hot weather kills people too, in trumpland for example many people who have no air-conditioning at home seek refuge in libraries
Summer or winter, which is worse?

Expecting a UPS delivery of pens.....

Apparently delayed by weather or natural disaster

Looks OK outside to me, a normal warm evening

Weather forecasting is one thing, but the temperature inside is another

I have a couple of indicators:
butter, not in the fridge, how hard is it?
I buy one banana at a time, put it by the window to ripen, takes weeks in winter, a couple of days in summer
