Rain
« on: May 04, 2017, 05:59:37 PM »
Can't remember having this much rain in April and May, lots of local flooding, basements full of water, and roads washed out. It's been raining heavily all day again and isn't supposed to stop until Sunday afternoon. Getting kinda depressing.

It's getting worse now, mudslides causing road closures, water front homes being evacuated.

April in the U.K is historically the rainy month. However, this year I think we saw about 45% of the average for the month and all I can say is, it has to go somewhere (wink wink).
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

Thanks  :D, glad you're having an above average spring. Looks like the rain has let up for now, hopefully that will be the end of the downpours for a bit.

Odds are, one of us just jinxed it. Possibly both of us.

Didn't check the roof the other day and the drain was clogged eith those long clump leaves from the trees. Water came all through the house .which sucked nuts.

I hear ya, now that the rain has ended and the sun has returned, with it came high pressure cold. We had a frost warning this morning and the temp was 34F, 20 degrees below normal for this time of year.
