Too hot to celebrate

Yesterday was the hottest I've ever known the 12th June to be in England.
According to our external thermometer it got up to 31 C in the shade.
Now that might be biased, but it was hot!!

Later in the day it rained and the temperature dropped down to 9 C sometime in the night.

Why do I keep track of the weather on 12th June?
Simple answer: it is my birthday.

I can remember one birthday that was much colder, which I spent on the island of Fano, just west of Esbjerg in Denmark.
Then the five summers I lived in St.Catherines, Ontario were surely pretty warm.
Round about 1990 I was in Vancouver, and that was pretty steamy, but I think not as hot as yesterday.

Today the weather has broken, and it has rained quite a bit, and after a morning temp of 23 C it dropped down to a more seasonal 14 C.

Happy birthday Mary! At least you have occasional warm weather birthdays - I have no chance, I'm a January baby!
