    Saturday looks like a nightmare to me, 38 degrees and high humidity...Does this bring out even more spiders and flies?

    It's dry here but very windy. Apparently our fence at home has given up already - another thing to fix!

    I suppose that after 5 or 6 "stubbies" or Fosters or XXXX you can put up with a lot of things.

    Headwind all the way, I normally hold 20mph on one stretch of flat, but this morning I was standing up cranking the pedals doing 14mph.

    I should be able to catch the jetstream on the way home, though.

    I've got some excellent wet weather gear, so it was OK.
    Same here but got swampped by a lorry, it was like a tidal wave when it hit me. Thank goodness for good waterproofs. Rest of my kit stinking out the office as it drys on our rad.

    Well lets see, the roof DIDN'T leak! Amazing, normally we would have expected a huge flood in 3 areas with this much rain but not even a drip!, had a pool in the new building as it usually does as the path slopes a bit the wrong way tbh, tunnel from Bus drop off point to our site was under about 1ft of water so students crossing the road, and the river by the edge of campus was washing onto the path next to it so thats a bit too high and getting a bit close for comfort, other than that not too badder day

    A tad moist here in Kendal!!!!!

    Called back home at 11.30 as danger of flooding. Got here just in time, water about an inch from coming through back door. River burst its banks in middle of town and roads horrendous. School closed by 2pm and students and staff sent home.
