Reports are coming in of an unseasonal rise in temperature in the Welsh Valleys.

Residents are being warned to take all precautions to avoid dehydration and sunstroke as the thermometer reaches 95F. A local resident said:

Yes it is 45F here, which is 35C. Unless some of you are much cleverer that me and know any different.

The last time this area reached 35C was errr.......before records began.

You read the Daily Mail, I take it, Sue.

I have just checked temp here in Pontypandy and it is 45C or 147F

Not unusually high round these parts. I've got two jumpers on :-D

Sometimes I wonder if I've wandered into a parallel universe ;-)

Thanks Emma :-D I feel better today and my grumpyness has been restored ;-)


JustJohn Report 4 Feb 2013 12:59

You can wander into my sauna any day, Rose and Sue.

Anyway, I am out now and temps are similar to Aberdeen. Not sure how to work out minuses in both F and C - but it's flippin' cold, isn't it, Emma? :-D :-D

It’s fairly warm around the Commons this morning.

Would you ask your partner to accept your deserved speeding points?

Who can afford to be married to an honest MP?

I don't know about an unseasonal rise but somebody in Poddypanties is TAKING the rise.


Julia Report 4 Feb 2013 13:44

Must be the gas and hot air being spouted from Pontypandy by someone, and I do not mean someone in great pain who needs the Entinox. It is us in the great pain, having to continually read it.
