If it makes you feel any better, I'm just back from doing the opposite trip. Spent the last couple of weeks in Portland, Oregon on business.

All the blurb for the place says expect it to be wet at least part of every day, although usually pleasantly warm in the other bits. So the umbrella and raincoat got included in the packing. And what do I get for the entire week I was there? 25-30C temperature and glorious sunshine every day. Neither aforementioned items ventured beyond the suitcase, and it was t-shirt weather.

So if all else fails, maybe head north-west?

It's beautiful today, but over the weekend we had sleet and snow. :x Nothing stuck. But come ON!

global, man induced climate change, I never liked the term "global warming" even when it was first coined some 25 years ago, it is a misnomer for the sweeping envirnomental changes we humans have caused.
Thing is I think we confuse the end of the world with the end of our civilisation, the planet will continue in some form, just without us on it...

FINALLY! the sun has come out. And the Blue Angels are buzzing my office building while they practice for Naval Academy commencement. What a lovely roar and shaking as they pass over.

Today Hampshire is damp, dank, soggy, drippy, sullen mess of grumpy damp drivers and squelchy school children all going to work, or school.
Miserable day here so far, I have got in to a dry quiet house, and consoled myself with a mug of instant chocolate, and a nice warm cardigan . I think I might be turning into my Mother. :shock:
Hope you are all warmer, and drier than us lot today! :thumbr:

The weather is 39C, strong hot sun and not a cloud in the sky.

Quite looking forward to flying home tomorrow for some rain...

After a lovely clement (temperature and humidity-wise) spring, "sumer is icumen in" today. With the Solstice arrival, temps are forecast in the 90s, with clear skies and very little wind. On Saturday I managed to get Mate into a kayak for a couple of hours, and was extremely tempted to 'accidentally' tip over. I was kept in check by the expensive optics and GPS in the boat. For the first time EVER, he didn't want to come in when it was 'time' (I had a later social occassion with Discworld associates. :D ) Sending you some virtual sunshine, Jackie! :sunny: :sunny: :sunny:

Today has been better, the odd spot of sunshine, and much warmer, lets hope it holds long enough for my laundry to dry! :sunny:

Copenhagen is warm and sunny with some fluffy white clouds today. Hope it will stay dry for the bonfires tonight!

That sounds interesting - is there some sort of festival in Copenhagen tonight?

It's Saint John's Eve, which is the time for Midsummer celebrations in Denmark.
I found an article about it in English here: http://www.thelocal.dk/20150623/denmark ... hans-aften
