On Tuesday, July 19, temperatures in much of England were between 88° and 92° F.

It was, by far, the best day of the year. Full sunshine made it a perfect opportunity for me to soak up some rays whilst doing the gardening.

Just a few days ago, I was wearing a cashmere sweater, a daily item of clothing this year. Despite warnings about global warming, this has been one of Britain’s coolest summers in more than a quarter of a century.

Nonetheless, the country went into hysterics over one day of hot weather. There was even a melée in Hyde Park, possibly exacerbated by the heat.

I am aghast at the number of articles in the media saying the UK is experiencing one of the hottest summers ever. I’m bundled up most of the time. We had the heat on during the first week of June. If the mercury reaches 70°F, it’s a blessing. It’s usually cool, cloudy and breezy. Piers Corbyn’s WeatherAction readers agree on June — and July. Corbyn, incidentally, predicted a cool summer.

Enough hysteria. It’s summer. It should be hot now and then. Even in England.
