June 1st and yes the heating came on this morning. Courtesy mainly of a brisk northerly hitting the gable end of our end of terrace cottage.

I made sure the heating came on for my Mrs this morning. A small comfort to make her feel loved and mollycoddled.

I'm trying very hard to resist the temptation to put the heating on.

It's fscking cold. One of the riders on the 600k Audax we ran at the weekend recorded 5°C during the night.

It's June. This is crazy cold.

My heating responds only to temperature, not time of year. It is definitely on right now. Most rooms are set at a 12 -16C level during the day, the whole house at a minimum of 12C during the night.

Overnight temp outdoors has been below 4C most nights, with a strong N/NW wind, so the heating does come on in the mornings.

I'm rethinking cancelling my Zwift subscription! Too cold outside, and riding Zwift is cheaper than turning the heating up...

Hasn't gone below double figures at night here, but neither has it gone above 20 in the day. Short sleeves at night, long in the day.

Whereas I’d be surprised if we’ve had more that one or two nights in double digits, the range bring 5-8C over the last couple of weeks. We lack the urban heat island effect.

We're on Orkney at the moment.  On the local Radio Orkney spot shoehorned into BBC Radio Scotland they did a segment about heating.  Orcadians were telling how they had turned the heating off in May but have put it back on in June.

The temperature is bumping around mid single to low double digit centigrade with a wind hill factor taking 4 or 5 off that.

The rain has given off for now ...

It was warmer in April than it is now in June. Temps hit 20C on some days, now they are barely creeping over 10C.

We have family staying, and we've needed to get extra heating in the bedrooms for them.

Lots of idiots shouting (on social media) about how this proves global warming is a scam by the elites to control us and get our money.

Yes, probably totally next year. This from July 2023:

The Gulf Stream system could collapse as soon as 2025, a new study suggests. The shutting down of the vital ocean currents, called the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (Amoc) by scientists, would bring catastrophic climate impacts.

Now is the time to buy warm clothing, like Scandi-warm or something fit for Winnipeg.

I refuse to give in to that defeatist manner of thinking. Mrs ED was wearing a long coat on Saturday to go shopping. I acknowledged the temperature by adding a hat to my shorts and t-shirt
