I think everyone can't wait until it's finished.
Is it possible that the shape of the tower will be finished in May?

Definitely not. We'll be lucky to see the full shape by end of year.

London receives just below 650 millimetres (25.6 in) per annum, which is less than Rome, Sydney or New York City

this time of the year it is usually cloudy in London but it does not always rain and the temperature is pretty mild today (13.c) so it does not feel as bad as it looks

That doesn't say anything!

Sidney for example probably has extreme showers once in a while. While London has way more rainy days but just with miserable little drops ( I hate that), like here in Holland

Australia has less rainy days than the UK while Australia gets more heavy showers so more mm of rain in total.

I finally succumbed and purchased the Hipstamatic app for my iPhone last night. So I had to give it a go on my journey in to work this morning.

[yes, that's The Shard just visible on the right from South Bermondsey if you squint]

So far, I've discovered that, on its defaults, it shoots at 600 x 600 resolution.

That has since been changed.
