Who says the IOM ain't different?

1976 - heatwave all over Britain. In the Isle of Man it rains. *

2009 - loads of snow in Britain. In the Isle of Man we have a beautiful blue sky all day.

 

 

* I am not old enough to remember this, I was told it by someone else!

There was hardly any rain, and most of the reservoirs were drying up - so much so, you could see buildings that were submerged when the reservoir was created. Not seen that before or since here.

With all this fuss - will we be hearing the emergency siren when it snows?

 

I remember it hailstoning at the QB on 2nd July some years ago, and it didn't seem a cold day either. Also on Thursday 23 November 2006 on the island it reigned idiots.

Hail's different - in Germany / Switzerland we can get massive hailstorms in the middle of summer.

No rain at all during the school summer hols. No clouds, no nothing.
