What's happening?
« on: August 10, 2018, 09:50:31 am »
The sky has gone a different colour sort of greyish and drops of water are falling from it; at 84 my memory is not what it was but I have vague recollections of this phenomenon in the past, can anyone remind me what it is?
Cheers MIKE

Your next door neighbour must be using a hosepipe, and must be reported to zer Authorities immediately

Not a drop of rain throughout the month of July at chez Bealman, and nothing so far this month.

Major drought problem here at the moment.

I was woken up by the rain hammering on the mancave (conservatory) roof at 03.30, then again by a single clap of thunder at 05.00 and, just as I was dozing off again, the rain pelted down again at 05.30.
I'll be seeking a couple of matchsticks later on :sleep: :sleep:

That means I'm going to have to mow the lawn again.  :(
