The Bonkers Weather

Its just bonkers.

Ran to the car in the most torrential rain which was like some Amazon rainforest monsoon storm type thing (gah)

Shut the car door and I'm now set in the carpark 1 minute late in blue skys.

It's just nuts (swear)

Weather forecasts have been crap lately. It said this morning I was going to get soaked. No rain at all and still sunny here in South Coventry.

Was driving down some country roads today and they were more like rivers in places. To be honest at one point a wave engulfed the entire car. I was more submariner than driver (giggle)

25% chance of light showers on the way home, according to the forecast.

I couldn't see in places the rain was that heavy

Went over woodhead yesterday and it was like a river in places which caused or contributed to at least 3 crashes on there yesterday.

HAHA!

Just been out on the roof garden and turned the tables over. Also had a 12 foot tarp out there that I've been trying to dry out for the last week with very little success. That had to come in wet because it won't be there in the morning.

Stick the tarp over your head and it will definitely be dry by the morning.......only issue is you could be in Germany, Africa or Iraq depending on wind direction (happy)

Fully bonkers.
