    Probably a bit of a strange one, But has any else noticed that the weather has been extremely unusual since lockdown measures announced? It would make you wonder, do the planes in the sky, cars/lorrys on the road & unnecessary traffic indeed have an affect on our weather.
    Grandparents have always said that the summers were nicer when they were younger, wonder if in fact there is some truth in it...

    That did cross my mind. But I would have expected a bit of a lag. As things stand its barely rained and has be quite sunny since the day the lockdown started. In Dublin anyway.

    I've never seen weather like this since the lockdown started. (Galway zero rain).

    It's like paradise or something. Maybe we all died.

    Ye it has been unusual. So many bright days with clear skies and Sun. Still a bit cool but the air seems more fresh.

    But look at Saturday. Really warm then how quickly the temperature changed. Haven't ssen much rain in a long time either. Great for drying the clothes :)

    Mine is the same and i did have a bottle of evergreen or similar but can't find it. I know places will be open Monday but can't be bothered. Let nature do it's course when the rain comes.

    Don't mind him, just showing off.

    I can see the sea but it's outside my 5km zone. :(

    I think there are more bees out and about when I go out walking on my local road.

    I think much of this is being noticed because people have more time on their hands and less clutter in their minds when out walking.

    Yes we’ve had an exceptionally dry spring and early summer, but it’s just 2018 since we had a drought so it’s not unusual.

    And so sooner are the restrictions lifted the weather breaks down.
