Rain today anyone?
We have had rain through the night and the odd drizzle but not much to speak of.
So do we escape the 40 days and 40 nights?

Please No Screaming Marydollgrin

Rain in the east today. It's my 63 rd Birthday and I have had very few without rain at some time during the day.

Yes, rain in the north west but the sun is shining now. Let's hope that means forty days of mixe weather, rather than persistent deluges.

It's rained on and off all day in West Northumberland. Here's a photo I took earlier to demonstrate. It really does sum up our summer so far.

Intermittent showers here in North Devon.

Drizzly day in our corner of Somerset, bone dry 10 miles away. Maybe we can slip in with that area?

Thanks, rosesarered. Just a couple of small showers so not too bad. Just beginning a holiday so had a good day.
