    Got totally drookit last night going home. Was dry until 4 miles from home. I could see both the edge of the cloud and what I was heading for. Jacket and overshoes were in my bag as it was warm, hadn’t even put the waterproof scrotum over my bag. Eventually stopped at the tolls on the Forth Road Bridge to pull that on but I was already wet through so decided no jacket and no overshoes. The shower I got caught in was laughing heavy – that sort you just piss yourself in cos it’s so ridiculous. Was “fun” coming off the north end of the bridge at 50kph and not being able to see a thing due to water and steamed up shades! Got home looking like Gollum.;)

    I guess that's one of my "12" ahem soakings of the year.

    Anyone else get soaked yesterday?

    Me neither!!

    But then I only work Tuesdays and Wednesdays these days.... so I didn't commute anywhere yesterday!!
     
  4. Not yesterday, but this morning it was pouring down. I knew what the outcome would be, so I've packed dry shorts, shirt and socks for the return leg!!

    the R fairy stuffed me good and proper on the way home you'll be thrilled to hear

    left work late so pouring rain and quite gloomy too for extra fun, wringing wet but still good fun, I like wet roads, back felt a bit wobbly though, touch of a slow puncture, whizzed along nicely, tyres hissing along in the wet, nice

    Looked out of my front door at 6.20 this a.m....lovely! So no rain gear...

    10 mins into my journey the R fairy struck and absolutley p1ssed down on me.

    But don't worry, the minute i got to work it stopped and it is now nice and sunny...grrrr
