End of the Heatwave

I don't know if I should be happy about this or sad, I'm going to lean towards sad. The recent heatwave we have been having is coming to a dramatic end over the weekend. Heavy rain is on the way. In fact it is so heavy that Roads Safety Authority has issued a safety alert.
A spokesman for the authority said: “At this time of year the roads are at their most slippery when the weather breaks after a prolonged dry spell.

“This is because the fine grit on roads tends to polish the road surface and roads also see the build up of a film of rubber and oil deposit.

I'd have liked a drop in humidity so long as it remained sunny. Still, now Fingal County Council will have a cheek if they continue to blame the recent good weather for the water shortages in the area.
