    I love the rain personally. Spend 4 years in Spain and you learn to appreciate it

    No more rain please, last couple of days I've been watching the Chinooks going back and forth trying to plug the burst riverbank at Wainfleet which is around 5 miles away. Hundreds evacuated there but as usual if it's not happening down south it's deemed unimportant :mad:

    If you look at the weather report it's going to keep raining into next week.

    I just looked through my photos and this time last year I had a really nice sun tan. This year barely any, and not through lack of trying either.

    Now that I’m retired, I don’t give a toss if it rains or not, but when I was working, (London Black cab driver), if I woke up and heard rain, I was in the cab like a rat up a drainpipe, there were hands up all over the place.

    You're not trying hard enough. Although I don't actually try, it just happens.

    Really messing up the World Cup Cricket. Due to rain so far 4 games were abandoned and a point shared between the teams, but this is insufficient for some teams who needed the wins to progress.

    It's rained every day here for well over a week. My gardens are starting to look like the Amazon.

    Erm your post seems to have a sense of contradiction in it.

    Domestic press coverage is of course somewhat proportional to the population affected by the issue at hand

    Tell me about it, I can't put my roof down because it's mostly wet and windy.

    I'm also doing a photo shoot at Osborne House next week on the island and there's rain forecast! Hoping it moves on by then and the forecast changes...
