Default 100F - I Was Wrong!

Brian Gaze is slagged off when he gets it wrong so I will congratulate him
on getting it right. I thought 100F was very unlikely this or any other
Summer. I was wrong and Brian was correct.

Yes but certain people predict 100F *every* summer.
How many years has he predicted it and it hasn't happened?

Hear hear. If you make enough predictions you will always get one right
eventually.

I found it quite interesting how today's record seemed to creep up with less
media hype than Wednesday's "attempt"- presumably the heatwave was becoming
old hat...

And the chances are, that within the next decade, the UK will have a another new
maximum to celebrate/endure.
