    Absolutely hammered it down here yesterday afternoon. A good 4-5 inches (in my washing basket that i had left outside along with all my washing). Fair bit of thunder too.

    Really humid now, odd spot of rain, and storms predicted later.

    Night was much cooler. I even needed a thin sheet at one point.

    No storm, but heavy thundery rain for a while. The garden has perked up a bit now, looking less like everything is trying to die.

    I think this is going to be the norm going forward as it's down to climate change. So unless we can do something to reverse it fast, were stuck with it.
    Time I think for those who haven't already done so, to consider what we can do to make summers bearable on the domestic front.
    I'm looking to finding ways to keep more windows open all night (cat not allowed out at night). And efficient, but not too expensive, ways of cooling my flat, although I don't know how to do that without consuming more energy.
    Also using my oven less as it's like a furnace in here when I'm cooking, even though I use my mic and slow cooker as much as possible.
    All suggestions considered.:)

    Yes I feel quite guilty about the AC unit but I hardly use any fuel for heating in the winter as I prefer to be slightly cool. Even yesterday when it was unbearably hot I only had the AC on for a few hours and the fan the rest of the time
    We have just been using the toaster, a George foreman grill, microwave and hot plates. I couldn't even stand to start the oven! Mind, I've had salad most days

    I had my coat on this morning walking Belle. Quite chilly here. Wish that storm was up here, I love when it goes dark and rain pelts against the windows.

    Im looking into reflective blinds for the windows. I think the trick is to keep the heat out as much as possible and that seems like a cheap option. Also read a suggestion about putting a bottle of frozen water next to fan (poor persons air con??:D)....gonna see if that works too.


    well, I kinda got my thunderstorm. I think we had about a months worth of rain in 15 mins, a few rumbles and that was it. Felt like a monsoon...esp as the rain was really warm, so it didnt really cool things down much.:(

    @catz4m8z ,it does work with the iced bottle in front of the fan. Just remember to place the bottle in a container as it ends up sitting in a puddle of water.
    Sorry you were disappointed by the rain;).
