    Never seen such a bad weather ...we had 3°C this morning + strong winds + rain most of the time ! Having right now a ray of sun but indeed ever soooooo depressing. It will be sunny on Sunday (So i'll have my sunday walk with all the trekkers of my club)and then rain again most of the week ! Weather is making the headlines on all papers. Everyone sound sad, depressed,and tired.

    I don't know why God is so sad ...I just hope HE will quickly stop crying...it's contagious and honestly I'm fed up to get wet with all his tears!!!

    Frankie, better get your act together, we're hitting Calais two weeks today! It's sunny here in Stranraer but only 13C at present.

    We really are looking forward to France regardless of the weather, heading toward Carcassone this year.

    Glad you enjoyed your Scottish trip.

    A piece out of a french paper:Doh:

    Tornado, snow and stormy weather

    AFTER a holiday weekend of snow, torrents of rain, storm winds and even a water-spout, forecasters say that the moche filthy weather over most of France will continue until the end of the month. :Eeek:

Heavy rain one night and showers on about 4 days, mostly cloudy with occasional sunny spells, managed to use the BBQ 3 times and mown the grass, trimmed the hedges etc.

    Cloudy and windy today with a short shower so far temp 17.

    Hi Bill!

    If you wish/need to stop at my place send me a PM i'll give you my address and phone. Toulouse is on your way to Carcassonne, and I'm not far from the 4 lanes(périphérique).
    Even if i'm only free after 6.30 at the moment on working days , it'll be my pleasure to have a drink (or 2 or 3 as would Mo say:Wink:) with you!
