Editor's Viewpoint: Let's make hay while the sun shines... and hope for more
As Northern Ireland continues to bask in glorious sunshine, with more of the same to come, our natural pessimism comes to the fore as we wonder is this our summer. Continental Europe may be largely assured of good weather during the summer months but far too often we have seen the tantalising promise of a sunny May turn into dismal June, July and August.
The message is clear - make the most of the current heatwave, water the plants and don't forget to put high factor sun cream on our easily burned Celtic skin. And, most of all, think positively. Maybe this will be the year we get that overdue long, hot summer.
