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).

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.

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.

Today the beeb's weather widget was saying it was 22-23 degrees when it felt no different from last week when it was in the 30s?

Something ain't right.

Rain is imminent, apparently.

No, love festival but this heat and lack of air is really oppressive.

Saying that, I have to fit 2 Velux windows in a felt roof this week and rain would really scupper the schedule.

Now it will rain, right?

More rain on it's way ... again! I've been waiting for a couple of dry day when I can re-ply and fiberglass a flat roof. So far the only 2 dry days we've had back to back, has been this weekend.

That's perfect for most, I suppose.

NECROMANCY!

Got woke up by rain coming through the window next to my bed. Not open, not cracked, it's coming through the damned frame.

Gonna rotate the bed 90 degrees in the room to avoid the feckin' splash zone, but that's not a fun way to wake.

Blanket was soaked on the outside, but it's so thick I got woke by rain on my face.

Eh, it doesn't rain much. Maybe I'll get a respite and can report it in 2019?
