Agreed the weather is totally mad this year !

Yesterday morning was bright and sunny and a lot warmer than of late - then - at about 4pm, there was the most almighty clap of thunder (it was so loud the whole house shook - myself and a few neighbours came running out of our homes thinking it was an explosion !), then 5 minutes later it started to rain and hail. The hail stones were so big and heavy that there are still some in the garden this morning :shock:
I've heard that Monday is expected to be unusually sunny and warm, for February. They are predicting it might reach 17 degrees C (around 60 degrees F, I think?), in southern England, so might be quite spring like. I hope to potter about in my garden and enjoy the long awaited sunshine.
