    Where are you? :hmm:

    Not seen rain for about 7 weeks in Worthing, there's a 25% chance of a little later this evening.

    ETA: Why isn't this in the general forum?

    Worcester.

    Had a phone call from the wife to tell me to bring the washing in.

    That was about ten minutes ago. It's now stopped raining. I feel like a fraud...

    Sasaferrato reported rain in Scotland earlier, not sure if that lasted more than 10 minutes.

    we had rain yesterday morning - a couple of miles north of Worcester - ok, so it was more mist than drizzle, but it was water falling from the sky.

    it had no effect - my garden looks like Sudan...

    Joking aside; it's now proper stair-rodding down. This is the last thing dust-dry ground needs :(

    It rained quite heavy here for a bit last night... I found myself standing by my back door watching it like you do when it snows heavily :D

    The rain's torrential. And thunder.

    The wife went out an hour or more ago. It's only a 15 minute trip to the garden centre.

    Coming to terms with the fact I might now be a widower...

    If it rains here tonight, I am going out in my pants to dance in it.

    * this assuming it doesn't happen if I am down the pub at the time.

    It's all just terrible. Not sure how to process this.

    More and more rain. The very dry ground and footpaths will get washed away.

    And the wife came back. I haven't started cooking dinner yet either. And she pointed out the fact I failed to close the garage door. #dogHouse

    You should make it up to her, perhaps take her for a lovely cooling walk along the river - but be careful, the paths can be slippery in the wet, and the Severn can be dangerous. Fatal, intact, if something awful were to happen... :thumbs:

    I wouldn't hurt a hair on her head.

    If she had any...

    There must have been some really big bangs in Wiltshire - a lot of them were louder here in Bristol than ones barely outside the Bristol postcode area.
    Lovely and cool here now :)

    Nothing here...And they're talking about turning water off at night.
    It would have to rain non stop for 2 weeks for this drought to improve.


    Can ye send a bucketload of rain over here please?

    About an hour of light rain. Just taken Mrs Sas up the road to sit with our daughter's cat for a while, and the place is alive with snails. They must be replenishing their water levels.

    It was enough for the grass to take on a greener hue. :)

    Looking at the forecast, it's going to be next Friday before any substantial rain.
