Or the time when he posted made up averages for his location that were way colder than any station in NI.
He made up forecasts as well.

"if I post the forecast you listen to what I say because its correct."

There's no way 90F would feel hotter in CT, not a chance. I understand CT can get some humid heat in summer, but I think he just loves a moan about any type of warm weather lol. I'd love a warmer than average winter in the NE this year to keep Tom happy and watch Cambium go crazy lol
His whining is annoying because he whines about weather that would be like a dream in FL during the summer. 28 C highs with 17-18 C lows is soooo oppressive.

A warmer than normal winter in the NE would more than likely be a warm one here too, no thanks.

And then he went on to talk about how big his house is a few pages down. Classic Owen.

That is only if you like milder winters, with lots of cloud cover and chilly temps (though not cold very often). It's true for being that far north, London is mild during the winter months, but it's not even close to being a subtropical location even if you can grow a few palms. With all the palm tree photos that you post from time to time, it seems as if you are attempting to do just that. and I'll repeat what I said earlier... I would never equate London or any other oceanic climate (northern hemisphere) with palm trees. They just don't fit right when considering the lack of warm temperatures and sunshine hours.


Also, locations in British Columbia at 49-51N like Kamloops are much better than London in my opinion.

San Francisco has tons of palm trees, and is not warm at all in the summer. Just because a place isn't hot in the summer doesn't mean palms don't look right or shouldn't exist

Shouldn't exist? Who said that? If you can plant it there go ahead. I said it doesn't look right to me. When I think of palm trees, oceanic climates don't come to mind.

Google the words palm trees... I don't see London or Seattle or any oceanic location popping up do you? LOL

There are some locations north of the Caspian Sea in Russia that get warm summers highs for their latitude and proper winters.

Seems that their summers are getting more crazy every year. They broke their all-time July record this summer (38.4C):

Most people think of the tropics when they think of palms - as those Google image results show nicely. Most people in the UK wouldn't associate palm trees with San Francisco anyway.
