Sunny evenings at Stoer Bay, Clachtoll
Rain I here you cry, whats that?
I tell you what, at this moment I would go outside and dance in the rain, if it was raining that is! As much as we are all basking (or in my case melting) in this glorious sunshine, I feel there really hasn’t been a decent rainfall since March.
Though our Loch is low the water lilies are thriving.
Should dry conditions continue for the next five weeks, as predicted, 2018 could well become the driest summer on record. That honour currently goes to 1995, with total rainfall over the full three months of 103mm. Fortunately – for both wildlife and gardeners – some rain is on the way, with thunderstorms predicted within the next week. That will be Monday when both hubby and myself have time off from our week day jobs then!
Should high temperatures persist, it could also beat 1976 as the hottest summer ever. Earlier this month, Scotland recorded its highest ever temperature of 33.2C in Motherwell, breaking the previous record of 32.9C set in the Scottish Borders on 9 August 2003.
Love it or hate it there is nothing we can do about the heat so best make the most of it.
So take care, keep hydrated, don’t get burnt and enjoy….soon enough we will be moaning about the rain.
Keeping cool in Stoer Bay
Only with Sunny days do you get beautiful sunsets
