    Grantham has had it all day but so far it's just been a constant downpour rather than the waterfalls of last Thursday and this Wednesday... looking forward to seeing what state Horncastle is in later though

    So far, OK. But we've got more sandbags here than your average WW1 trench.

    Rain? Just a little cloudy here. Not seen any *really* heavy rain down here at all!

    I've just driven back from Buxton to Kent in diabolical conditions. Heavy rain and loads of spray, rarely making it above 60 the whole trip... Or even 50

    Most driving sensibly, but I could murder people driving only with side lights. It made lane changes very difficult as you couldn't see them coming up from behind

    I'm totally knackered, but glad to see sunshine now.

    I'm in London and my office is on the line where blue skies begin and evil grey clouds lurk in the sky.

    @witch: Lorry drivers are the worst. I was restricted to 50MPH on the M25 one downpour as I could feel the car losing it at 60 and lorry drivers went bombing past me. It's like a bucket of water being poured on the windscreen, blinded me.

    Just drove back t'north from Newbury, a boat would've been a more sensible form of transport. As for the standard of driving by some people, just unbelievable!

    I went to Hull at 2pm today (only 30 miles from here) took me double the time it normally takes as I could not see where I was going and now its bright sunshine!

    Ok, I was wrong. The monsoon has arrived in Bristol too now. Just in time for the weekend.
