31st July 2017 I'll think of something...
Monday 31st, 62F, 17C, bright, but cloudy, with showers possible. Denmark nearly got away with a 38 year old record for a July day without hitting a 25C temperature. That's 77F in Old Money. Yesterday it hit 74F locally but other places spoilt the show by reaching a stratospheric 26C. On only three occasions since 1878[?] has Denmark failed to reach 26C in July. It has been a rather unspectacular year so far. More mild and damp than hot and sunny. The wine has suffered but the slugs have thrived. Next come the midges. And that was July.
