. . . that we in the colder climes spend so long longing for warm weather then can't handle it when it arrives.
Don't get me wrong, I absolutely ADORE heatwaves - I just wish that they didn't occur at times when I have to cover myself up (relatively speaking) and can't wear as few clothes as possible.
Scotland is just not equipped to deal with hot weather.
For example, on Saturday afternoon the guy dropped me off at the station. Ten minutes later I discovered the trains were all cancelled. Cue for me to have to wander aimlessly around Motherwell following a random couple who took pity on the fact I clearly didn't have a clue where I was going.
And the reason why the trains had been cancelled??? The overhead wires had MELTED!!!
Yup, if global warming continues, I think Scotland is pretty much screwed . . .
