    Brits & weather

    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1457709436.178301.jpg

    Current weather here and beer garden is full. By any standard (apart from maybe Canadian) it's still cold. First glimpse or warmth tho and sun this spring. Everyone still in jackets but we got to take what we can. Count yourself lucky in LOS!

    It's always been a fixation with us Brits and not surprising considering we can get such a range of weather in a small country.

    I take it you were in the beer garden too.
    First time today you can actually feel the warmth of the sun. Clocks go forward next week and hopefully summer not too far away. I hate winter!

    Affirmative, albeit the first one was too full. Seems the workers of Kingston are taking the afternoon off. Bit annoyed as this should really be the unemployed people's (me) time.

    Yep, got invited to a BBQ tomorrow... Its bloody 11.

    Seriously though, handling the cold well. Its better than 39 and humid (similar conditions to Satan's rectum).

    You must really be feeling the difference! Should be warming up in a month or so. I would also take 11C over 39C. Anything over 27/28 is too much for my taste.

    I kind of enjoy the heat and humidity.
    Get out there in the game, don't sit up in the bleachers. That is the philosophy of pimps and preachers.

    Yep, feeling it but I'm not really bothered about it. I dont mind it the way it currently is. To me it isn't the ambient temperature that gets to me, but the biting cold wind. Fortunately I've got a big arse jacket that takes care of the wind. Besides, if you're too cold, you can just put on more clothes, if you're too hot there's only so much you can do before being arrested for indecent exposure.

    That being said, its all shiny and new to me at the moment, I'm sure by this time next year when it's gotten old I'll be a miserable sod like the rest of you :P

    ^ Wait until you have experienced a British "summer". In September you'll be saying, "Was that it!"

    I like Winter, love lighting the fire, choping wood and a nice walk with the dogs on a cold clear night. No kids out screaming all day, no fair weather dog walkers who haven't a clue how to mind their pets but the bonus is that women wear less. Hate bbq's though, most overrated form of cooking. Hey it's hot out lets burgers and steaks!

    ^Winter is great when it's a sunny crisp day... it's the weeks of sunless cold grey drizzle that eats away at you. Though it does make you appreciate spring even more when it arrives... in April, May or June... or July... 55

    Totally agree with this.. A crisp frosty type of day.. Clear blue sky and brisk.. No problem, add a north face jacket and your ok..

    But the day after day of grey and wet ?? Mud and dirt.. Just sucks the life out of a large portion of the year.

    ^I even think that has limits. 6 or 7 degree bright crisp day nice. But get below zero and however much sun there is it's still too fcuking cold

    Brits & weather

    Today's another good'un. Apart from a load of rugger bugger toffs in Barbour jackets it's again perfect weather for out door boozing.

    Your bbq mjwx might well be worth it.

    Have mentioned this before but we basically emigrated from the UK 'cos of the weather.

    We just lie in the sun like lizards now.

    Its a lot better in the UK at the moment. 10c+ daytime even in Scotland! Combined with lighter morning and nights makes a world of difference

    A beer garden in the UK in summer on a sunny day with chilled wine and good cider on ice is unbeatable
