Has anyone been given the date for Summer to start this year?

I'm thinking that i might have missed it and maybe it was Friday, as it didn't rain on Friday, and I didn't need a jumper....

    Here in Fife, we had summer in April. I think we're into Autumn now, but with winter winds.

    I do know where summer is, though, we were in York on Thursday and it was 25 degrees. Even keeping in the shade, I got burnt as I'm so unused to sun.

    Yes, for the second year now summer was April. It is now like Autumn in the West of Scotland with many trees shedding their leaves due to the high winds & stormy weather.
    Our annual holiday in Arran has been very wet for the last 3 years, but we do not holiday in Scotland for the sunshine.


    Never be afraid to take a profit. ;)
    Keep breathing. :eek:

    Hopefully summer is waiting until the first two weeks in July, and last Friday was just a taster, fingers crossed..............

    I think we may have had ours in Argyll this afternoon... Obviously not a whole day, but an afternoon of sunshine after a month of rain must surely count ...
    Was driving me mad that everyone in England is complaining of drout... I was thinking, we should all get together up here, pool our hosepipes and offer the English a pipeline, provided they buy the hoselock connectors :D

    I dont think that it is everyone in England -my parents live in the south west and there is no drout there
    Treat everyday as your last one on earth! and one day you will be right.

    Now I know there are many,many places who would love the rainfall we get-even in Britain currently- but enough is enough.
    Every day is the same here,dull and damp with sun peeking out now and then.
    No wonder we are a peely wally depressed bunch:mad:
