Summers aren’t what they used to be…

From two ladies from the Llanelli area at the National Eisteddfod during a heavy shower of rain (summarised, originally said in Welsh):

When they were children during the 1950s, summers felt as if they lasted forever. We don’t have summers like they used to be. 1976 was the last proper summer we had; everything was dry. There’s a village, near Rhandirmwyn, that was drowned for the reservoir. But in 1976 the lakes were all dry and you were able to see the old village.
