Uwdi Krugg will be spending whats left of the 2017-18 season visiting South West non league football grounds and taking lots of silly pictures.

Its rained for 50 days and 50 nights

After yet another wet, cold, miserable mid June day the mind looks for small positives. I'm afraid there are hardly any in sight. For the 5th year running the summer weather around the western upper edge of the South Pennines has been absolute PANTS.
How ironic the eastern side of the country is apparently enduring a drought (which will doubtless put 'yet-more-ridiculous' price hikes into gear). Some smug home-counties woman from BBC News said we might run out of food next winter and we're all going to die. They have it rough down south don't they. They stopped reporting on North West weather during the Thatcher period. Its usually pretty cr*p in any case so we don't tend to bother.
Anyway, I've got a new lake to look at in my back garden, the cats a bit miffed because thats where he usually does his business.
I've got two wooly jumpers on at the moment and double socks, its 8 degrees max. Good job we haven't caved in to those daft calls for summer football, there wouldn't be a game on today, they'd all be waterlogged. Whats gone wrong with our weather system? It seems to get steadily worse every year.
