I continue to marvel at the weather in Britain. While it is much wetter in the north – southern UK is spectacular. The Brits love to talk about the weather, other people like to talk about how crappy UK weather is and I remain perplexed.
For example, last weekend we went out as a foursome and spent the afternoon golfing. It was spectacular – 14 and sunny. Granted, a little cold as the sun dropped down but still – we were golfing in January.
According to this site, London is one of the driest cities in Europe and the city with the least variance in weather:

The family starts tennis lessons next week. I honestly do not know what they are talking about when they complain, not a snow bound 100 car pile up to be found!
