I repeat what I just posted on the politics thread:
Portugal is colder, and Orkney not as cold as many folks think. We are not far from the ski lifts here. I suppose some folks would not be aware that Portugal has ski lifts. Orkney did have snow earlier this year, it happens. Being small islands surrounded by sea, the mean temperature in Kirkwall is higher than Inverness, which itself is close to sea level and the sea itself. Higher ground is colder. We had lots of snow and plenty of hard frosts on the top of the Black Isle before we came here. A hill farm inland in Northumberland before we went to Australia was a lot colder and endured a lot more snow than that too. We had snow there in June – the day after the first European referendum, and a bad sign in my opinion.
As some of you know from a certain thread on TFF I have taken a great deal of notice of changing temperatures for more than a few years, and have no qualms about Orkney weather.
We accept there is a lot of wind and rain on Orkney, but the Azores are the same. Only a wee bit warmer. You can always wrap up against bad weather, but once you get down to your skin in hot times there is nothing more to take off.
