My dear Friends
The weather is of course the nation’s favourite topic of conversation. It’s safe – value-free and non-confrontational – and because everyone experiences it, everyone will have something to say about it.
It’s the perfect opening gambit when you find yourself needing to talk to a stranger, and a great gap-filler when neither of you is quite sure what to say next. Actually we’re fortunate that the UK weather is quite interesting because it’s so unpredictable; how on earth could you use this particular small talk if you lived in an arid desert or a tropical rainforest?
I remember John Humphrys on Radio 4’s Today asking what new things anyone could say about the wet and stormy weather which had then been occurring daily for several weeks in some parts of the country, and then answered his own question: it’s exactly that. Never in living memory had such weather lasted so long. And these last few weeks have been similar; 1st June was a beautiful sunny day, but since then… well, we’re all wondering if and when summer will really get going.
