The British Weather ....

Well, last week we had the snow. This week we have the rain - oh, and a warm breeze (Force 8 - 9!) off the Atlantic to help drive it through your coat, your umbrella, down your neck and into your boots!

Wales, Shropshire and Yorkshire have serious flooding problems and in Tewkesbury we have the steadily rising tide of the Severn backing up the Avon. Thankfully, the heavy rain that was predicted for the South yesterday failed to happen where I was driving so it wasn't as bad as it could have been for me. Attending funerals in rain is always a little depressing.

Oh, the joys of having weather instead of a climate!
