    Well it was hell at school today as the kids were soaked when they got to school and have been inside all day. Glad to see them go home!

          I've driven to Gloucester and back today and it was horrible all the way there and back! Really nasty driving conditions, hope everyone stays safe

            I'm in the middle of having my roof replaced. I am in admiration for the plastic sheeting that has so far managed to save our ceilings. Not a single drop has got in.

            But I've been living out of a suitcase for over a month now and am nearly at the stage where I would promise never to use a hoepipe again for the rest of my life if it just meant we had 3 dry days in a row to get it done.

              Have been soaked down to my pants twice today! Everything is on the radiator and I'm still chilled to the bone.

              I often get caught out in the rain on the school run with the pram, but feck me this is ridiculous!

                Am so fed up with it now - today I have got soaked on the school run twice and spent the rest of the day listening to the rain hammering down on the conservatory roof. A dripping fringe and streaks of mascara down my face is not a good look

                  I got wet at 8.30 this morning, and haven't dried out since, as every few hours I end up back out in the rain.......and no matter what I wear (today I gave up and had on full lands end wax jacket, hat, waterproof boots I still got pretty damp.....

                  Also looks as if school maybe shut tomorrow as the lane was just about flooded (we have to cross a major river at a low point to get up the lane)....tomorrow may be a long day if we are stuck in doors!

                    PS - living next door to a water man (well he works for the water board) it needs to rain every day like this until August to replenish the water table.........

                          My best quotes from water people so far "We can't count on the rain to replenish the water supply." and "When all this rain stops it will still be a drought."

                          I mean really! If we can't count on the rain then what? Also I remember a drought in Africa tat lasted 7 years. It was a damn sight dryer than this, that's for sure.

                            The problem is, skylark, that for the past two years we have been running up to this drought. So a few weeks of rain is only making up for, yes, a few weeks of rain

                              I actually love it! I do of course feel sorry for those who get caught in it, but heavy rain always makes me feel cosy and calm.

                                I do like rain and love to listen to it. But having got soaked several times this week on the school run I am getting really tired if it!
