The heatwave is over, the early morning fishing continues and I’m enjoying the retired lifestyle

I was only thinking yesterday about Denis Howell, who during the 1976 heatwave was appointed as Minister of Drought.

Then, within days, it rained so much that people were calling him the Minister of Flooding.

Well, sitting in our living room at home, with the patio door open, my wife commented that it was raining.

For about twenty seconds, spots appeared on the patio outside and then that was it.

We’ve definitely peaked though, as far as the air temperature is concerned.
