Summer 2017 fell on a Tuesday and a Wednesday this year, we are sad to report.
Coming to a conclusion at about 1pm this afternoon, Wales’ summer lasted exactly 56.4 hours, according to boffins at the Met Office.
“It may sound grim, but that was actually the third longest summer in our history”, explained weatherman, Derek Brockway. “I hope those who were lucky enough to be off work at the time enjoyed it”.
Asked if he enjoyed his summer this year, Brockway said: “I was sadly working, but I saw some of it from the window. The sun always makes me reminisce about my childhood, like the summer of 78. That summer lasted forever!”
“In reality it was a sunny spell that lasted about four hours or so, but still. Memories”.
