Let's hope for good summer

IT turns out that the past winter was the wettest one on record, but we probably didn't need Met Eireann to remind us. Householders, commuters and, well, anyone who stepped outdoors has spent the past three months battling a series of storms.

Perhaps the glass of rainwater is half-full, though – surely after the winter we've just endured we're now due a good summer?
