To be fed up with this weather

.....And want some sunshine ☀️
The weather (and the storm) is making me feel pretty low and depressed.

I don't mind it being cold when at least the sun is out. But dark days are the worst.

No. I’m in Scotland and travelling to work has been a pest for about 2 weeks. Weather warning after weather warning. Fed.up

Today's sunshine was a bit positive. I was so glad when I went to pick my son up at 4.30 that it was still light outside.

Shite isn’t it. Feels like it’s been dark, cold, wet and windy for about 4 months now

Yep, I'm so fed up I've just booked a week in Tenerife at Easter, need something to look forward to!

I don’t like wind, but love some heavy rain. Nothing better to sleep to. Give me this weather over a god-awful British heatwave any day.

I'm in Hampshire and it's been sunny and dry, but cold.
Have had my washing out on the line!

YANBU.

I normally don’t pine for summer because I’m not good with heat, I prefer autumn. But my god I just wanna be able to cut my grass! And use my garden, and walk to the shops without being blown into the next town. And have the kids go play in the park behind our house not stay cooped up all the ruddy time.

Agree @Iamserious ROLL ON SUMMER! Grin

There’s light on the horizon, snowdrops are appearing

I'm getting cabin fever.
One of the upcoming storms has the same name as me. At this rate it will be happening very soon.

Pretty much this, I hate British summertime so rather this weather

RampantIvy · 24/01/2024 20:30

I love summer.

Please stop wishing for rain. The farmers are struggling because the fields are waterlogged, and parts of Yorkshire are under water.

I can't wait until warmer and dry weather. I don't enjoy being out in the rain. Walking and cycling become an endurance test rather than a pleasurable activity.

It is absolutely shit isn’t it, particularly if you live in the North as I do. It never stops fucking raining. I had a look at the weather in Portugal, somewhere we holiday and the forecast is sunny/partly sunny for the next 14 days with daytime temperatures of 18-21! This is in January.

This. ^ The constant rain and stormy shitty weather is just a bit soul destroying isn't it? Why wish for more rain and cold and glumness? Confused

Agreed! I like the wind too though.

Wow. Good luck to you. Wish I could do the same soon.

@RampantIvy I love summer too. The weather, combined with sickness bugs is soul crushing- as aptly described by @SweetBirdsong

It's been rain, rain, wind, rain snow, rain, wind. Definitely over it now. Roll on April when it can actually be pleasant for a couple of months before heat warnings start 🙄

Moier · 24/01/2024 22:01

Yes.. think a break in Feuterventura is over due.
Just had a lovely five days in lanzarote beginning of Month.
And if it continues I'll be away for five days every month.
