There is rain , hail ( !!!!! ) even snow at the north down here on the 1st of June. Never happened before, hail in Athens on the 1st of June ! I don't know if its the climate crisis , and/or the polar shift which according to some is accelerating. Shocking. There will be a sever global impact on agricultural production etc. for sure , pollination cycle is severely damaged from all this.... :violin:

Seems like we swapped weather with each other, we have 25 degrees and not a cloud on the sky here in Sweden.. I remember our wedding pretty much exactly 8 years ago, with 2 degrees and snow/rain :lol: Must be weird for you guys !

The world surely will have to deal with several changes thats happening fairly quick at the moment (relatively)

Sunniest Spring on record in UK. It was preceded with one of the wettest winters. Wettest Februaries. They are skiing with fresh snow on Hintertuux Glacier in Austria this weekend.

The body on the Daimler got so hot today in the direct sunlight that you couldn’t actually touch the car!
The drivers side door trim fell off as the adhesive strip got hot and gave up :lol:

Feels a bit like still spring here, rainy and fairly cold when the sun is not up.
