Was fair hammering in Telford most of the afternoon/evening...went to pick littly up from Nursery at 5.20pm, and it was heavy then. Coming back with her in the car - mental. SO much surface water, people were aquaplaning. Even my autobox was spinning the wheels up on junctions. Low speed driving, lights, wipers, demisters on, and water spraying over the bonnet when turning so the wheels were pointing out of the shell slightly..interesting!

It's hammering it down and there's a strong wind. We have waves blowing across the playground. I pity the poor kids who get dropped off early and have to wait outside for 30 minutes or more!

Made my commute from Wolverhampton to Ludlow even worse not only is the road more of a river but most the vehicles are tractors causing epic wake down the road, need a wakeboard and some tow rope

Corrected for you this was what I was expecting, just had my boss walk in saying "Drought - What Drought"

Sadly a few days, or even a few weeks, of on again off again showers will not refill reservoirs. It won't do the crops any harm though!

Well I have the day off courtesy of the rain and gales :-) times like this make me glad I switched careers.

Having just driven through rivers on the A38 we now have thunder too, deep joy

Even if they were full, still would take them 3 months to decide to lift it... You would think after a lifetime of hose pipe bans being on/off in a country that actually does see quite a bit of rain they would build more. If countries that see hardly any rain and actually have REAL droughts can still use water... and survive you would think the great british isle would. Then again we are country where suppliers only care about profits.

if they really wanted to do something about water shortages they'd fix all the leaks but its easier to annoy customers

Got to the gym this morning and the fire alarm went off before I'd got to the lockers... I came home... I am NOT standing outside in THAT!

Stopped raining here. But still very dull outside still.

Cold wet and horrible here.
On the plus side the rain has cleared the bird strike off my car.

Raining here, as a cyclist it's a bit annoying :-), but to be honest if it is the sort of rain we need then I'd rather have it now so I can have a decent couple of weeks over summer instead of spending 2 weeks getting soaked in summer while camping and struggling to get my clothes dry.

Tipping it down at 6.15am when I walked the dog - windy too. Now it is grey and damp. No thunder though - I love thunder and we rarely get any decent storms
