Heatwave and the Summer of ’76


Yesterday was hot! so hot and muggy that most people tried everything they could to keep cool, today is cloudy and fresher. In ’76 all I can remember is every-day was hot, muggy and night time tempts being around the 20c mark, this went on for days and weeks, the grass turned yellow and large cracks appeared due to lack of water. Hosepipe bans, tarmac melting and personally the invasion of flying ants……they were supersized ants….the size I’ve never seen since, put me off creature features for some time.

Yesterday was a day of reflection, today is a day of looking forward. To the next heatwave Summer? or simply to tomorrow.
