Rain & RAIN

Well there's rain and there's RAIN and that was RAIN, we had what could generously be described as a babbling brook running through a culvert under our drive, usually about a foot wide and ten inches deep. Currently about five foot deep and forty foot wide ripping out fences and cutting us off from the rest of civilisation. I suspect that some on lower lying areas are due a very unpleasant day.

You appear to have experienced the downpour we had just after 6.0 this evening. Ours was accompanied by a fair old thunderstorm and we were left surrounded by a mini lake. The gutters on my house and garage were not able to cope, believe me, that is unusual.

Never mind, there's only just over 24 hours to the longest day, mid-summer?

And to think we were all warned to buy our camels whilst they were cheap as Britain was becoming a desert ;-))

I wonder if any of you above are likely to have a hosepipe ban this Summer?

Just spent a fun few hours shovelling mud, ain't global warming super.

We had just a bit of rain around midnight....:-)

In fact we haven't had all that much at all this year as bad weather tends to pass over my coastal town - from around five miles inland, however, it's a different story.

Stuartli. Same here in Formby last night only about an hour of rain but plenty of Donner und Blitzen. I pulled my plugs out and went to bed.

It's been gorgeous today, my only worry is how quick the grass is growing.

The first two photographs indicate the amount we had in N. Somerset click here

The hosepipe's been put away Cymro!

It's usually raining in Formby and stops by the time you reach the end of RAF Woodvale.

It must be a most depressing experience to suffer the type of flooding many parts of the country have had in recent days and many months to get properties back to normal.

It could be worse it could be snow. And regarding the hosepipe ban I'm sure there will still be one, last year someone queried about it and was told yes there had been a lot of rain but it had fallen in the wrong place. Good that isn't it, in order for us to have enough water its not only got to rain but rain in a particular place.
