English Summer

Yeah, so here in England our summers are, erm 'different' to most countries. It's the end of June and we are still seeing rain. I heard thunder and saw lightening today....which was closely followed by tweets of how terrible the weather was..
The amount of complaints I have heard  about how much we long for a nice summer.. People are always complaining about the English weather.
