We'd like to know how you viewed this summer, and as a simple and measureable way of summing it up, we thought we'd make a quick poll! Please place your vote!

It appears that we can't allow guests to vote in polls on this system at the moment - sorry about that! But if any guests would like to cast their vote, please just make a comment with the word you would like to vote for and we'll add it to the results :closedeyes:

The word I would use isn't in that list, but would probably include a few asterisks.

Lol, you're probably not alone - but if you had to use one of those words (since this is a family forum!), which would it be?

It would be intersting to analyse the results by region and see if the West voted worse then the East etc.

Geat, I'm with you on this one!

I don't agree with all these poor votes, I'd say it's been reasonable from my experience of it. It hasn't been the total deluge of last year, but than we've hardly broken temperature records either! It's just been a very typical British summer, in other words average. Don't forget we had a hot period in May and a very nice sustained period of hot weather in the last 2 weeks of July, so that's alot better than some of the summer's with had in the past!

For saying this is not the Med, I think this summer has been perfectly reasonable - although I would have liked a few more storms... :rolleyes: :)

A poor and disappointing summer - for S.E. England - worse than 2007. Weeks of westerly grot with no thunderstorms and constant windy, dull and humid weather accompanied by bits 'n' pieces of rain is not my idea of a fun summer. I am actually hoping for some sunny anticyclonic weather this autumn just to have a respite from this gutless unproductive Atlantic influence!

"Poor" was the option I voted for -- will leave 'awful' for those in Ireland, South West England, Wales, etc.

I voted mediocre, but wanting a more weather-orientated word in the poll - unsettled!

I would have to say a reasonable summer. Its not been bad as we've had some good sunshine and warmth within the period.
Disappointing at times, but we've been spoilt in recent years for a comparison.

As well the numerous asterisks my one word would be 'Naff' but it isnt on the list

I think it's been a reasonable summer. We have had some warm days here and there, a few dull and rainy days which I find has been quite normal for August and a couple of Storms thrown in too :) So hasn't been to bad in my opinion.

I wouldn't go as far as fantastic, but certainly good. No silly hot, humid weather and instead a fair mix like we used to get in the old days. Of course, we did miss out on the flooding in these parts!

On the whole it's been pretty poor but as we have had several lovely days in amongst the poor I voted mediocre. Last July and Aug were definately wetter and colder. At least this year it's been slightly warmer albeit dull and overcast.
