We had a couple of serious ones on the Pennine Moors about a month ago.

Some parts of 'rainy England' haven't had even a drop of rain since May.

Supporter of the construction of several running gags, including I-366 with a speed limit of 85 mph (137 km/h) and the Hypotenuse.

Please note that I may mention "invalid" FM channels, i.e. ending in an even number or down to 87.5. These are valid in Europe.
