    I just got drowned! Twice. I went to the post office (<100 yards away) and then the bank (<200 yards away). Its fuckin bad. I hate global warming...in my day... :tongue:

    And I have to go back to the post office at some point today :redface:

    Anyone else in the UK not like the tropical weather?

    If we're going to be tropical when are we going to get some steamy hot weather?

    I don't like the constant rain, I hate umbrellas so if it's raining and I have to go out I know I'm going to get soaked through.

    Well I'm not in the UK, so I can't speak on the monsoons, but if you can send some rain this way it would greatly be appreciated.

    You need a good old fashioned Tropical Storm to slowly move over NC.

    Tropical storm is what I meant. I went back to the post office when it stopped raining. I'm staying in now. I have no hood on any of my coats either...*sigh*

    I did see a guy with a Royal Bank of Scotland umbrella today though. Wonders never cease :tongue:

    I was stuck in Strattford-Upon-Avon several years ago in a similar rain storm that flooded a big part of that area.

    Actually, I was there for over two weeks that time and I can't remember it not raining. It must have been early November.
