A right shower

12Jun11

I emerged from the tube station and stood under the canopy to get my umbrella out of my bag. The rain poured down. A small cloud of dust and cobwebs fell out as I opened the umbrella. It was a long time since I last used it.

Naturally this was the day that a drought was officially declared in parts of Eastern England.

It will now rain solidly for the next 40 days. Mostly on my vegetable patch, I hope.

    Yes – it was quite amusing watching the Sky News reporter who’d been despatched to the Environment Agency to report on the drought – huddled under her umbrella as as the rain poured down.
