    The sun has briefly com out. If it carries on like this Kent will be flooded and no longer have a shortage of water. The rain's been horizontal most of the morning.

    Teenage son was wearing coat when he left home... can't help wondering if he took it off before he got to the bus stop!

    A bit dull in Preston with a couple of light showers today. Gutted yesterday. They predicted wind/rain all day so I took the car. It was very nice and sunny with a light breeze for the most part and I could have cycled in

    Yes, but what about the weather?

    It's been pretty much similar here, nice weather for the most part Monday - then all started to go downhill fast to today's only brief bits of non-hooning-it-down.

    Remember you're not allowed to use hose pipes to unflood the playgrounds!

    daft as it sounds if the ground is too dry water cant easily soak down to get into the system and just rolls off the land and uselessly away. same as part of the problem in the south east is the amount of concrete on the ground with people concreting in gardens etc water just runs off rather than soaking down into the groundwater system
