This year's weather is seriously weird. Went to Carlisle, picking up a colleague in Ambleside on Tuesday (very scenic, much slower, but overall cheaper and greener). En route we encountered bright sunshine, rain, hail and sleet, as well as snow-topped peaks and green fields. The recent flurries have made the south lakeland hills you see from the road into work very eye-catchingly white, but it is, er, mid April.
You can always say it's a one-off, and one weird set of weather doesn't make a trend, but isn't all this climate confusion telling us something?
