London weather is awful

The weather in London is crap. Crap. Crap. Crap.

People keep telling me that it will get better, but I've been here for six months and it's still crap. Actually, that's a little too harsh. The weather has changed from really crap to slightly less crap, so there has been some improvement. And there has been one day in the last six months where an overcoat wasn't absolutely necessary.

Canberra is not especially known for good weather. However, compared to London, the Canberra weather is awesome.

I still hold out some hope that the weather will get better as the summer sets in! At least we are getting longish patches of sun now...

Longish patches?? Not sure what you're talking about here!?

Do you mean that there have been one or two periods of "sun" that could be measured in minutes rather than seconds??

When I went over in August I had fabulous weather. It was light until about 9:30 at night and sunny quite a bit, 25 degrees or so. I didn't understand why Londoners complain about the weather so much. Of course, I've never been there in Winter.

Well, I admit that I have heard that in some years London may have up to 2-3 weeks of nice weather per year. You must have been lucky to have caught the few weeks of decent weather. It's certainly been pretty crappy for the past six months.

As I type this I am looking out the window and oh look, what a surprise, it's drizzly and grey outside.
