Hi Bernhard,

I hear Richard G3CWI is working on a lightweight SOTABoat… Had to wear 4 layers and full wet weather clothing on Monday activating GW/MW-011.

It`s 11C, near galeforce wind & horizontal rain here in Buxton. I think we had our summer for 3 days in April. :frowning:

In reply to G1INK:

Dry and cloudy in Brum with an occasional glimmer of sun. The forecast for the weekend doesn’t look too bad. Summer is scheduled for September!

The Buxton WX sounds ideal for a bit of grass slope polybagging!

A little bit off-topic, Today I was on a on a cellphone (UMTS/HSDPA) site on rooftop of a building, about 30 meter above ground, working with the basestation equipment placed in a outdoor cabinet. Above me the sky was blue and no rain, while other buildings nearby around was under heavy rain and dark clouds… I was there for one hour, finished work as fast as possible and while climbing down the ladder to get inside it start rain heavy on me …

The wx forecasts for the weekend says rain on sarturday, possible rain on sunday, will see if i can get out /P and do some chasing on summits…

No we definitely had summer in February… http://www.flickr.com/photos/gw7aav/2419068148/sizes/l/in/set-72157604568408112/

I was supposed to attend the RIAT at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire last weekend but it got cancelled because of the rain and flooding. We were on our way entering France when the bad news struck.

Pray for me that this weekend will be better as I will be at Farnborough and hopefully see the Vulcan fly again after more than 10 years.

Trust me, august weather will be better; I’m on holiday then :o)

I thought we had a great summer, trouble was, we had to travel to South Germany to get it.
