    Here, (Solihull, West Mids) the rain's coming down so heavy the drains can't clear it fast enough :tongue: watching the cars outside, starting to aquaplane.

    I cycled with the kids to school this morning at about 8.30. Despite the rain, we soldiered on, and I told them not to worry, it'll be lovely by the end of school:wacko: I am starting to think that actually it may not be, actually we may well be underwater:ohmy: It has not stopped raining, even for a moment, all morning!!

    I'm thankful that the weather behaved itself for the start of the TdF.
    God must be a cyclist? :tongue:

    Coming this way I think. Better nip out to Post Office sooner rather than later...

    I think, this year, St Swithun might have got it right...

    Hope you're OK? and you don't end up like all those other unfortunate souls.

  8. Pouring down and blowing a gale in the east midlands. Luckily I live on top of a hill...it hasn't really got light all day and from where I'm sitting it looks like November rather than July.

    I've just realised why it's the lead item on the news - it's affecting southern England.

    Never fear Patrick, there's a radar 'red bit' heading your way - but there is a good chance it will peter out on the more significant hills on the way up...

    "In Hereford, the council has been handing out wellington boots to help motorists rescue about 200 vehicles stranded in a car park. "

    There is, somehow, something quintessentially British about a council handing out Wellington boots...:tongue:

    If it gets any worse, they'll have to ration to one boot each, and make people hop!
     
  13. Took off from Gatwick airport this morning en route to Hamburg. Jeez, was that a scary take off or what!!! :tongue::ohmy:

    Down here in South Somerset, it's overcast with bits of sun and only the odd spot of rain. Not too bad given the forecast.:tongue:

    'Some foriegn chap just knocked on my door and asked if I had any pairs of rare animals he could buy. He said God had told him to make some kind of floating zoo and he had a REALLY long list of animals to collect. What a nutter.

    Oh, it's started raining quite hard outside, bloomin weather!'
