………….talk about the weather, that is.
According to this article, the Brits are more likely to strike up a conversation about the weather with a stranger, than most other topics.
So, hello all you strangers, and not so strange(rs), we’ve certainly had our fair share of crap weather recently 😦
My daughter did remark on how clean everything looks, well, what would you expect when we have had more or less continuous rain for the last two weeks.
This recent storm caused havoc in the town centre, with streets being flooded and a wall collapsing.
I’ve just spoken to my mum in Yorkshire this morning, she lives in an old Victorian house with a cellar, which has now got two inches on water lapping at the bottom step. In the cellar, is her washing machine and fridge freezer, so she is frantically trying to find some sandbags to keep the water away. Her next door neighbour has recently had his cellar re-vamped and a brand new kitchen fitted down there, but this is now flooded too.
She’s lived there many years, and some of her neighbours even longer, and they are all saying they’ve never known anything like it before.
Is the world really coming to an end, it must feel like it to some 😯
On a different note, T has just asked if I fancied doing anything. “Huh, in this weather” I replied
“Well, we could go and sit in the motorhome, and pretend we’re on holiday” he said 🙄
