    I wore shorts to work today, smart shorts only to be slightly stumped as it's not *that* warm. Whilst it isn't cold either, tis a bit too windy for shorts, the grey clouds have been lingering around here all day, there has been no sun (thank heck) we're still dry down here in saaarf London.

    ah-well, I was casting rain spell's during my bike ride yesterday (90miles in and far too hot and sticky, needed the down poor). They appear to have worked (I got very wet). Didn't think the spells I was using was stong enough to carry over to today or effect other parts of the country though (the sun came back out 8 miles later, and I was dry by the time I got home).

    Still, Sorry and all that

    @Dan - worked it out a while ago from some of the posts, and I know Alamo do AHS, my old school, and my sister's currently there

    It's eased off here which usually means that side of Wakefield will dry up soon!

    The one in Wath is down Manvers, the main road that goes under the railway bridge just after the conrete works, that links to Swinton and Mexborough to Wath, where it dips down its about 4ft under atm!
