Summer 2007

After the best spring I have ever known followed one of the worst summers I have ever known. Things got off to a good start with the first two weeks of June being warm and sunny, then everything went downhill with it turning cool, wet and windy. July was a near (but not quite) write-off as thinly scattered amongst all the wet days were some gloriously sunny and warm ones. Here in the South West we missed out on all the floods that affected places further north and east, in fact it seems (as is often the case) that we had the best of the weather. With the arrival of August came the first really settled weather since early June, though there was a short rainy spell mid-month.
