There is still no end in sight to the unsettled weather that we have been "enjoying", nationwide, for the past three months or so. The BBC News has just reported that the Met Office has confirmed something that will come as no surprise to any of us - it has been the UK's wettest winter since national records began, in 1910. We, in the Outer Hebrides, have faired better than most other parts of the UK, however, with only a few, very minor incidents of flooding. Records for England and Wales reveal that they have had the heaviest rainfall since they started maintaining them in 1766.
Surely things are bound to improve soon and, hopefully, we will all be experiencing brilliant sunshine and temperatures in time for the main holiday season.
