After a cold, wet winter and an equally poor spring, we were hoping for a glorious summer to make up for it.
The French weather channel, Meteo has dashed those hopes though by forecasting the worst summer on records since 1816. They say that cold maritime fronts and weak solar activity gave us the poor spring and will lead to a summer with short bursts of heat followed by heavy storms in August. By way of consolation, they say that September and October should be warmer than usual.
Our girls are coming out to visit us in August, the last thing they will want are storms!
