Re: freaky weather....

I can remember organising a BBQ on Benone Beach, Co Antrim one fine June day. It snowed on the way to the beach

Forecast doesn't look to bad, do you have insider knowledge?

Re: freaky weather....

That must be a record for March...and for Madeira.

Nature is telling you to pour yourself an oloroso.

Re: Freaky Weather . . .

Oloroso is a type of sherry, and the basis of Bristol Cream. Retired oloroso casks are sometimes used to age brandy & Scotch whiskey.

Re: Freaky Weather . . .

There is a rare bit of sunshine here in the PNW. People are outside squinting like moles. I'd recommentd that you should only spend a half hour outside during this rare occurance.
