What global warming? Here we are, nearly half way through May and we still have the heating on. I can't remember ever having it on so late in the year. Certainly, back in 2003 when I was still working on the house in France, I recall sitting in the restaurant garden to eat dinner. But at least the wind has dropped. For the last couple of days we have had strong, possibly gale force winds. There doesn't seem to be much damage - a couple of trees blown down in the woods and plenty of smaller branches, twigs and leaves on the ground, but nothing to bother about. It was difficult to believe that the temperature got up to 13 or 14 degrees, the wind chill factor making it feel a lot cooler. But it should still be warmer than that!
