While I seem to be in a general Monday AM raining outside grumpy old man mood lol, am I the only one who has has enough of the rain now.

It seems to have been raining virtually constantly down here for like a week plus, with storms and wind. Driving to work this morning, it was trecherous. Everywhere is flooded or struggling. And to top it off my front porch has developed a leak this weekend!! Argh!!

Please can we have some sun, warmth and calm.

I too was put into a grumpy monday morning mood because of the rain as it was really throwing it down this morning, I ended up with wet feet and have been walking round the office in my socks whilst my shoes dried out on the radiator, the bad mood was offset by a nice Sausage sarnie with tommyK [:D] and it has now stopped raining and its almost lunch time..

I have been more fed up of the Rain/Wind Combination though.... fingers crossed that nothing fails on my house.. as for warmth, calm and sun.. I suggest you erm.. go hols [H] lol

I'm very annoyed about it.

I'm currently digging the footings and doing the drainage for my extension and currently it's on hold due to the wet as it rapidly turns into a mudbath.

The last couple of winters have been exceptionally dry with well below average rainfall, this winter so far has been well over average, the met office website says that in Nov we got 136% of the average rainfall !!!

Gutted, I was hoping it was going to be dry again this winter.

I'm fed up with it too.

The ironic thing is that I think my area still has a hose pipe ban because of the drought [:cool:]

Rain doesn't bother me, this is England, it's not as if I'm not used to it, I'd be more worried if it never rained at all, I love playing football in the rain though so maybe it's to do with that. Having said that, there's nothing like a hot summer's day for a long drive

Welcome to my world ! Lancashire has to be the wettest county in the Uk, or, atleast England. More specifically I seem to live in the area of lancashire that has the most rain too. Its nice for everyone else to feel just as gloomy as me . . [;)]
