I was hoping to go walking but its going to be a very wet weekend in the Midlands, I don't mind getting caught out in the rain, cycling or walking, but I'm not keen to set out in heavy rain, I guess I'll console myself with housework.

As for "global warming", here in North West England the term should perhaps be "global raining". As for 2017 , I cannot remember such persistent downpours. hardly a day passed without rain.

Why is it that as soon as the schools break up the weather always turns wet and windy?

There was a feature on Breakfast TV this morning about this
I cannot believe the weather this last weekend was like a deluge. Although the garden needed the rain as it was bone dry and the lawn was getting parched it has gone to the opposite with the lawn is now a mini lake
