Hello All,

 Having just read all your interesting messages on the weather i thought i would say a few words on the matter...

I think in the UK we are used the damp days and mixture of weather but having just ( well September)spent a few days in Wales,i think we are quite lucky!

From the moment I arrived in Conway, to the hour we left, it rained.Even when the sun came out it was still raining.Wales is absolutely beautiful and so picturesque,everywhere you looked you wanted to take a picture...Especially around the Snowdonia area....Stunning!!....Just SO wet!!

( But worth it! )

Deb.

Hi Debbie! It does tend to be a bit wet over there. But I am glad your trip was great! I don't like the humidity over here with the heat. Makes it hard to breath sometimes.

Hi Debbie:

You would love Arizona if you like hot weather.  We're lucky too, in that we don't get that crushing humidity.  Both time we visited the British Isles we were in Ireland, and it seems to be a bit cooler and wetter in Ireland than England.  Next trip, I'l love to visit the Welsh mountains.

You need to put some more pics on here for us, James, we who have to live vicariously.  Have you ever looked at Sue Bristo's pictures?  Her pics made me realize that Lancashire is pretty heavenly.
