i’m speechless. what was i saying about the british weather? friday was the hottest day of the year and now this.
clearly something is changing in the northern hemisphere. we had a blisteringly hot summer in 2006 and barely a season ever since.
I vaguely remember that it snowed on our way back from a may holiday in majorca in about 1983, and that new year’s day in either 1990 or 1991 was unseasonally warm and sunny. but four seasons in one week? never.
prince wrote that song for a reason. most uk kids will remember the garage cover version by amar and mc rankin which is so far from the original that it’s barely worth comparing.
