I've just read that in the night of the 24th to the 25th of June, there was a new record regarding the highest minimum temperature in Europe ever!
It was 36,7 degrees Celcius as the lowest temperature that night in a place in Sicily! Man, that's just 2 degrees below the highest maximum temperature here in the Netherlands.

Big storm right now,very windy,lots of rain,cold,hope power doesnt cut out cause im half way through a game of poker
Today rainy and 17 degrees, forecast rainy but a massive 21 degrees! Wow! This is dutch summer, although I really don't mind too much, unless it rains all day. I do enjoy watching tv and seeing people out camping with this weather....
There was a big gap in the tread between March and June, so nobody got to say that April was a massive heatwave in northern europe. In Ireland it was hot, hot, hot every day and great dollops of factor 30 were needed even to cut the grass. In Paris it was crazy - like the hottest summer ever. Now, just rain, cold, damp, grey here in Dublin, for the past 3 weeks
Duuuh.....just noticed that was in fact March '04 and June '07 so, ehh....that makes it a gap of three years and two months. A lot of weather. The sun came out in Dublin this afternoon though - maybe it'll soon be really summer
Rain, rain and more rain - but at least we are not flooded like in Yorkshire and other parts of England?
Anyone heard from Clarabell - shes in Sheffield isnt she - is she flooded out?
Mikey this thread is ancient took me a while to catch it on!
I have been busy and not been on TP as much.
The week before last was incredible here. It had rained all weekend, and wasn't stopping. At the moment I am on placement at the Northern General Hosipital, on the opposite side of the city to where I lived (past tense cos I have just moved). On the monday I was on an afternoon-evening shift. As the day went on, I began to realise that it was a bit more than just a lot of rain, as reports came in, and people were ringing in to say they couldn't make their shift cos roads were closed. By teatime, reports were that Rutland Road, my usual route to the hospital was closed, and that there was traffic everywhere. Initiallt I just thought that the traffic chaos was just due to people leaving work ealry in a panic, like when it snows. I thought it was all just a lot of panic and nothing really serious.......
But later, I was told I might have to spend the night in the hospital, which a lot of staff and visitors did. When I finally left it took about 2 hours just to get a few miles, and when I got to Penistone Road, by the Wednesday ground, and it was all barricaded off with cars bobbing around in the water, never seenanything like it. I was quite amazed. I had know idea how to get to the South of the city, so asked a policeman, who told me I had to go about 6 miles north, out of the city, across country lanes over the hills, then back the other side to get onto the road I needed. Thank goodness for A to Z's if I didn't have a map I would be so stuck! I arrived home at an ok time relatively. My boyfriends Mum did not get back until nearly 1am, and I know a lot of people whose cars were wrecked. Meadowhall Shopping centre was flooded and is still a mess.
Thankfully,neither my old house or new apartment were at any risk. But we are justt not used to this in Sheffield. Places like York, Gloucester, Worcester frequently flood, but we just were not prepared.
