WALKING AND THE BRITISH OBSESSION WITH THE WEATHER…

BACK PAIN BLOG UK...

A few interesting facts about the British obsession with the weather.

Did you know that a survey has shown that the British spend nearly six months just ‘talking’ about the weather. Apparently we are obsessed with the English weather. It’s one of the most common ways to start a conversation, which check-out staff at supermarkets have to listen to time and time again.

We spend almost five times a day talking about it and spend longer discussing it than we do discussing sport or work!!

Women talk about it more than chatting about their men, love lives and gossip and twitter gets around 500,000+ tweets a week about it.

Older people apparently have three times as many conversations about it and still believe in old wives tales, such as , cows sitting down (rain comes) and red sky at night (shepherds delight). Even Twitter gets over 500,000 ‘tweets’ about it.
