SPRING is here again, as Kurt Cobain once said. And it’s about time. After a miserable winter in the county – the wettest on record – every Oxfordshire resident is waiting for a turn in the weather.

This week has actually been light and pleasant – but we’re all waiting for the grim, grey skies to return.

But maybe, after weeks of flooding and dark, cold nights, things are changing.

The weather outlook for the weeks ahead is good. And, without wishing to tempt fate, we could all certainly do with a summer scorcher.
