I remember 2006 well... it wasn't as hot as 2003 where we had several 35C + days but it was better for longevity.

I remember this forecast... not often you see Scotland completely sunny and hot! That is what is quite surprising! Poor Shetland Islands lol... what a bad climate they have there!

I also remember we had a late hot spell in late September/early October in 2011... I think we broke the October record, reaching 30C on the 1st. It was quite surreal being so warm in October, and people sunbathing on the beach even though the sun strength at that time of the year is quite low here... I think this is a picture of the beach on Brighton on 1st October 2011:

Crazy stuff indeed. I liked it for the novelty.

That 35C over Cheshire sure looks out of place!



Similar to the Groundhog day blizzard pic, here's a photo of the 1979 Schneekatastrophe in northern Germany:

September 2008 floods in Chicago and Midwest






This was my neighborhood in 2008 when I lived in Chicago (Albany Park)



and here is some pictures of the school where I teach during the floods which actually forced us out for 8 weeks due to asbestos exposure when the flood waters bubbled up the floor tiles

water coming through the door on the first floor....













and me trying to teach out of a makeshift classroom in another school

I'm not sure what our record wet month is, but this January was considered extremely wet and yet we had nowhere near 13 inches.

London January 1963.. coldest January in recent history.

25 June 2007.







It was pretty bad, but in retrospect we got lucky - the River Aire has gotten close to a severe flooding incident several times over the past 10 years.

This is what the Environment Agency think could happen if we don't get flood defences:
