…and the living is – decidedly iffy up north.

That little puppy on the south coast of Ireland is what is going to be bringing more wet and windy weather to the UK this weekend on top of the flooding they have already had.

Ordinarily, the prevailing meteorological conditions 6000 miles… away would have little or no effect on my psyche, but this time next week, I’ll be there and I would appreciate it if things could sort themselves out by then.


UPDATE: The poor start to the British summer is due to the jetstream “a fast-moving ribbon of air about six miles above the surface of the Earth, which varies in position and speed throughout the year due to large temperature contrasts”, being too far south. I have also found myself being too far south at times, a situation I remedied by going further north. I would thus implore the jetstream to please consider doing the same.

    Hmmm, my weather report is: rain interspersed with tiny flickers of sun, and more rain, but it really isn’t particularly unusual or bad. This is an average British summer, so averagely sucky. Bring wellies. I am sure the vibrations in the air will shift slightly when you land and I will sense your mighty presence on the island. Have fun!
