There was something horribly depressing, she felt, about watching the weather report.

 That life could be planned like the perfect summer picnic drained it of spontaneity...

Galt Niederhoffer, The Romantics

I think we British are worse then ever on Bank Holiday weekends, poring over forecasts as though it mattered a great deal. As though life might come to a standstill because it's raining.

Why SHOULD the weather be sunny on Bank Holidays? It's not a God-given right, is it?

As it happens, this weekend the weather IS pretty good.

Oh, we must dash out immediately and enjoy ourselves by the seaside.

We British really know how to have a good time.
