    It's has been a pretty torrid year. Apart from the few days of sunshine last week it seems as if Wibter never truly let go.

    I've let the weather get to me this year, which has really messed with my head.

    Several reasons -
    I've just started a new job and timing was such that I haven't been able to get a summer holiday. First time in about 25 years I haven't had a break in the school holiday.
    My cycling time is limited and its difficult if I have time to go and its bucketing down.
    I'm trying to do some work visits/ appointments by bike and dont have the whole sweat/ clothes thing cracked yet. Rain makes it doubly difficult - to the point that it looks as though I might have to get a car for work use.

    So the worst weather I can remember has coincided with me feeling more grumpy and discombobulated than usual.

    You got soaked as well riding home yesterday?

    Absolutely drenched last night and I sheltered for about 40 minutes at Over station to let the worst monsoon part pass. Beautiful double rainbow though, a full unbroken half circle North to South so a pot of gold at each end :laugh:.
