Today, the temperature in Cambridge, England is 29 degrees. It is the 1st of October.
This means the average daily maximum calculated so far for the month of October (29 degrees) is astonishingly, more than double the average daily maximum for the month of October (14.6 degrees).
Statistically speaking it is even worse news when it comes to rainfall. In Cambridge, we are dehydrating. the average daily rainfall in Cambridge in October is just 1.65 mm. We have had no rain at all this month – 0 mm. At this rate we will all dehydrate and turn to dust within weeks.
It is not all bad news though…
The average amount of sunshine per day in Cambridge is just 3.71 hours. If current trends persist, (as of noon on 1st October), there will be an average of 12 hours of sunshine per day in October.
This is great news for Newnham Croft School who launched their campaign to put solar panels on the school roof yesterday. At this rate, their panels will generate enough electricity to power the entire town within days.
Local businesses will find this an extraordinary opportunity to support the local community, generate huge amounts of good will, probably solve both short and long term recruitment issues – the search for talent can never start too early…
If you want to help them out, sponsor a panel. Children and parents will thank you for it too.
