Should have seen the storms when i was living in Brisbane now that is what I call thunder and lightning, and the rain is relatively warm.
Was, infact still is, dreadful here in the farmer lands (Gloucestershire) - driving on the Motorway is so much fun in this weather, I felt cool being part of the "LET'S BE HARDCORE AND GO IN A CONVOY at 50mph" - I have a Micra, and even driving at 35mph my car was being physically swerved about from the wind. Gotta love the Jap cars.
I feel like giving up on drivers though, I -still- kept getting challenged by the big-headed idiots in their BMW's trying to overtake at the very bitter end of a dual carriageway or use the motorway as a launch-pad to speed across all three-lanes and slot in front of me, about an inch from the junction exit. People have no common sense! "Yeah that's fine, I'll slam on my brakes and st-- oh wait I've slid and crashed into the back of you"
On the way to work this morning, on the motorway in the driving rain with loads of surface spray, I came to the conclusion that silver is an absolutely stupid colour for a car. They're practically invisible in conditions like this, especially when the idiotic driver of said car doesn't turn their bloody lights on!
Chucking it down here too, in Hertfordshire.
Have to say, I am so glad I don't have to drive all over Herts, Essex, Cambs and all stations North to Lincoln anymore, especially in weather like this.
Living so close to school has its disadvantages, but it has its advantages too.
Not having half your salary eaten up by travel costs is bit of a blessing.Living so close to school has its disadvantages, but it has its advantages too
While this wet spell won't solve our drought, it will help. The rain butts are full to overflowing and nothing needs watering. I never water my lawn and it's actually looking green
Sunshine and around 9 degrees outside so can't complain.. although all weather forcasts on iphone are trying to tell me its raining at the moment......
I need more water butts...my little 100l one is full, and the thought of not being able to harvest this is quite irritating!
Lights-wise, yes. I had mine on full. So many people didn't. Came to the conclusion my £40 tyres with alloys deal rubber is OK, but in the wet can be a bit chancy. I hit the mini-roundabout on the deserted industrial estate on the way to take daughter to nursery, at my customary rate (WHY must Astra's handle so damn well..), and whee..back end went, fronts were scrabbling. I got a "Steady on, dad" from the copilot.
Not like I can complain though, for what they cost..heh..
