Today's forecast for Britain is rain, followed by more rain, followed by heavy showers, followed by more rain, followed by yet more, somewhat heavier rain and finally easing to a torrential downpour.
Yes, in Britain, it's been raining a lot. It's raining cats and dogs. Ha, ha, watch out for the 'poodles'. It's coming down in buckets and even hailing cabs. It's raining men! Hallelujah, right? Heck, even the Queen is 'raining' over us.
According to British weather sources, the cool , dark, dismal and wet conditions are due to the "jet stream" being too far south for this time of the year. Not so sure about "stream"....seems more like a 'jet raging river' has overflowed these shores. I've basically given up on what you see in the above photo. Yes, I kept bringing in the solar lamps and put in fully charged batteries. Only to take the fully charged solar lamps back out to my garden and have them fade to a flickering glow within a couple of days.
It seems but a distant memory that we had a clear night sky. Oh how I miss the drop of moon falling from the leaves.
Here is a photo of a sunny July morning. I fondly recall such days. And yet, I know, despite this awful weather, I have much to be grateful for. For I realise what horrendous extremes that many in our world have been experiencing. There are many who would love to have a share of our rain. The worldwide weather has been of great concern. I hope all is okay with you and that your weather is bearable.
