A well reviewed book (10 reviews, all with five stars) - 400 pages of fascinating weather facts, stories and trivia. Free delivery with Amazon Prime or with Amazon Supersaver if bought with a filler item worth £1.26 or more.

It's the great British obsession and not surprisingly: no other country in the world has such unpredictable weather, with such power to rule people's lives as we have. The Wrong Kind of Snow is the complete daily companion to this British phenomenon. From the Spanish Armada to the invention of the windscreen wiper, each of the 365 entries beautifully illustrates a day in the weird and wonderful history of the British and their weather.

31 January: The Big Freeze of 1963 brings the FA Cup competition to a halt: every football pitch in Britain is frozen: the third round takes 66 days to complete: the Pools Panel is formed as a result. 9 February: British Rail blames the Wrong Kind of Snow - it was a journalist's phrase, but on this day in 1991 it stuck to the beleaguered BR like flesh to ice. 15 July: The exceptionally hot and steamy summer of 1858 caused the Great Stink of London, resulting in the building of London s sewage system, still in use today. On the same day in 1930, rainfall in Yorkshire is so heavy that the Whitby lifeboat makes a rescue two miles inland. 10 September: A violent storm rather than British sea power defeats the Spanish Armada in1588. Four centuries later, bad light and rain stop play at the Oval . . . And much more.

Sounds very interesting, if you suffer from insomnia.

That's not what the reviews on Amazon, both professional and from the general public, say. You should try reading them before spouting off from a position of ignorance. Sheesh, some people. Would you like a refund on your part of the fee for contributing this post to HUKD?

Expired - now at £10.49, so a bit of a steal at the deal price :thumbsup:
