This is definitely the most bizarre weather I recall in the last 8 years. Normally my spring working in garden centres and gardens has a predictability to it. You start out with long johns and extra layers (sometimes waterproof) in early April. Then gradually take off a layer every few days or week until you hit shorts and t-shirt weather. There is usually the odd rain day but this year is crazy. Yesterday it was short weather (28 degrees) - today back to extra layers and full rain gear at 7 degrees. That is just one example - the whole spring has been like this. It is very hard to plan my weeks activities. And the weatherman is getting less accurate. I go to bed expecting rain and wake up to a changed forecast of sun. It is very frustrating but I will look on the bright side. I get today off or you wouldn't be hearing from me!
