I know i know but this made me laugh........

Taken from The Guardian

Sunshine

England and Wales had an average of 61 hours of sunshine, which, surprisingly given the rainfall, is 116% of the mean. That made it the sunniest December since 2009. Scotland had 39 hours, or 108% of its average, while Northern Ireland was much sunnier than average with 61 hours, or 149% of the average. Wokingham, Berkshire, was the sunniest location with 80 hours, while Aviemore, Inverness-shire, had the smallest total with only 20 hours.

(That made it the sunniest December since 2009.) How bad was 2009 i can't remember?

I can't remember 2009 either. Still. as they say, "If you can remember it, you weren't really there" Mind you, I reckon 2012 will go down as the year to beat i the crappiest UK weather ever, stakes I live in the Costa Del Casnewydd and I can tell you, it weren't no ordinary rainfall year, so where the 61 hours of sunshine were, I've no idea. Perhaps it's 'cos I work a lot of nights and so I missed out on the nice days :)

All the 61 hour's sunshine means was it was a little less overcast than it has been.
