It's been pissing down more-or-less constantly here since last thursday. It is depressing. It's 20 past 12, and I've had 3 customers in so far. Bitch bleat whine whine whine etc. Gimme some sunshine so I can maybe get some trade in here.

i'm with ya. Thunderstorm here until Monday, and before then, I have to pick somebody up at an airport, go to a show, and MOVE to another state.

All I can do is hope that it's miserable and pissing down with rain in the West Country, on my ex boyfriend and his new girlfriend. That is a thought that truly, truly brings me relief. The thought of them cooped up in the house and miserable and driving each other crazy, that makes me very happy.

Yes, I'm a bitch. I don't care.

I've been enjoying the rain, last week was largely unbearable, esp. the nights.

It depends what yr after, Barry. If it's a folder, yes, if it's a non-folder, I usually don't, b/c they are so prone do getting battered in transit!

Pashmina (Pashmina), Thursday, 12 August 2004 10:33 (sixteen years ago) link

No, I want a modern, slick, non-falling-apart version of what I have now (a Holdsworth road bike, none of this mountain bike nonsense). I love my bike but all its parts are just knackered.

Markelby (Mark C), Thursday, 12 August 2004 10:34 (sixteen years ago) link

It was OK this morning, but the pissiness has just started again. I stupidly wore open toed slingbacks and a skirt.

Madchen (Madchen), Thursday, 12 August 2004 10:50 (sixteen years ago) link

It's pissing it down here, lots of thunder & lightning too!

PinXor (Pinkpanther), Thursday, 12 August 2004 10:50 (sixteen years ago) link

It's gorgeous here, we had our rain last night (it flooded the pub)

Ste (Fuzzy), Thursday, 12 August 2004 10:56 (sixteen years ago) link

We've had a month's worth of rain in three days and it's still going strong. Try Glasgow less.

Onimo (GerryNemo), Thursday, 12 August 2004 11:21 (sixteen years ago) link

Yeah - it's supposed to be sun sun sun on Saturday. I'm working on Saturday.

Alba (Alba), Thursday, 12 August 2004 11:26 (sixteen years ago) link

i'm moving house!! It's sunny now, but still thundering.

PinXor (Pinkpanther), Thursday, 12 August 2004 11:26 (sixteen years ago) link

Barry, you'll be much better looking for a decent used model. It's a "buyer's market" at present, due to oversupply. Good ones to look for (if in good nick) are Dawes Horizon, Dawes Galaxy, Dawes super-galaxy. Haggle down, there are more sellers than buyers these days. I can't shift ANYTHING used these days except Bromptons in decent condition.

Pashmina (Pashmina), Thursday, 12 August 2004 11:49 (sixteen years ago) link

Rain's gettinge me down. wet feet, no long walks. boo. The Daily Mail found a way of blaming the bad weather on America. i admire their ingenuity and unrelenting hatred.

Robbie Lumsden (Wallace Stevens HQ), Thursday, 12 August 2004 12:04 (sixteen years ago) link

I thought the Daily Mail wanted us leave the EU and join NAFTA? I get so confused.

Alba (Alba), Thursday, 12 August 2004 12:08 (sixteen years ago) link

I'm not saying I really thought that.

Alba (Alba), Thursday, 12 August 2004 12:09 (sixteen years ago) link

I'm not sure the Daily Mail just like the hating. we clearly didn't deserve the rain, it must be someone's fault...

Robbie Lumsden (Wallace Stevens HQ), Thursday, 12 August 2004 12:14 (sixteen years ago) link

i still haven't experienced a touch of rain.

ken c (ken c), Thursday, 12 August 2004 12:16 (sixteen years ago) link

But the important question is how is the rain affecting property prices?

Dadaismus (Dada), Thursday, 12 August 2004 12:17 (sixteen years ago) link

Yes - asylum seekers are being given free roof repairs, which is distorting the market.

Alba (Alba), Thursday, 12 August 2004 12:20 (sixteen years ago) link

The rain coming down right now is quite amazing.

Anna (Anna), Thursday, 12 August 2004 12:39 (sixteen years ago) link

I'm really enjoying these cloudbursts (central London). But this one seems to be over already.

beanz (beanz), Thursday, 12 August 2004 12:44 (sixteen years ago) link

I wish they would last longer, I wish it would rain and rain and rain, because it suits my mood at the moment.

Super-Masonic Black Hole (kate), Thursday, 12 August 2004 12:46 (sixteen years ago) link

S&G's Bookends is providing perfect 40 days of rain accompaniment for me at the moment.

Alba (Alba), Thursday, 12 August 2004 12:50 (sixteen years ago) link

still no rain here :(

ken c (ken c), Thursday, 12 August 2004 12:50 (sixteen years ago) link

still gorgeous here :)

Ste (Fuzzy), Thursday, 12 August 2004 12:51 (sixteen years ago) link

I'm finding a super cheap 30's blues comp i got from fopp (£3! 4 CD's!) is the perfect rainy day friend.

Robbie Lumsden (Wallace Stevens HQ), Thursday, 12 August 2004 12:53 (sixteen years ago) link

Ooh - I think it might have stopped!

Alba (Alba), Thursday, 12 August 2004 12:56 (sixteen years ago) link

seven years pass...

does this shit intend on stopping any time soon

liberté, égalité, beyoncé (lex pretend), Wednesday, 25 April 2012 18:34 (nine years ago) link

ha i just finished watching the weather forecast

no, by the looks of things, although the current mid-atlantic squall over london should be the nadir

i really enjoyed the most miserably intense bit of it earlier because i was in bed with my laptop warming me watching leveson and with no need to leave the house, but even from this cosy perspective the sheer unstopping relentlessness of it becomes depressing

liberté, égalité, beyoncé (lex pretend), Wednesday, 25 April 2012 18:38 (nine years ago) link

yeah sturm und drang is always best appreciated from indoors

from tomorrow it's back to the last fortnight's enervating Miserable Pissy Rain

I hated the most miserably intense bit because I was out walking in it.

Cheggers Plays Populous (snoball), Wednesday, 25 April 2012 18:54 (nine years ago) link

I got stuck in a spring rain at lunch, with blocks to go. My hair is well and truly fucked for the rest of the day, I think.

When we first moved in here - in fact the day Neil Young was on TV playing in Hyde Park - we had the most fucking awful downpour that caused the trough on top of the bay window to fill with water and pour into the living room. We spent the evening with towels and buckets trying to mop up the stuff before it got in the electrics. We've had it fixed since obv. but every time it's rained since I've been really terribly anxious. This week hasn't been great.

kraudive, Wednesday, 25 April 2012 20:30 (nine years ago) link

We nearly went to that NY gig - after seeing Springsteen bring the place down the night before. If we had, we've come back to the worst mess I can imagine. I'm even still anxious about Neil Young's music.

Fucking April. Though. That was August. Fucking rain.

kraudive, Wednesday, 25 April 2012 20:32 (nine years ago) link

i'm meant to go out now and the rain has stopped but i am looking beseechingly at my bed, pleading with it to FORCE me into it

liberté, égalité, beyoncé (lex pretend), Wednesday, 25 April 2012 20:36 (nine years ago) link

Anyone else think they might go postal simply due to the sheer relentlessness of the weather?

Had to bin my London Olympics umbrella (£14 from M&S), which is coming apart from constant use in the last few weeks.

Pissy this morning even though it was forecast to be pissy this afternoon. Probably still be a bit pissy this afternoon.

i live in the south west, and today we experienced epic rain for hours.
that said, this vs the extreme heatwaves we have had.
i am not so sure which i prefer.

mark e, Thursday, 27 August 2020 19:49 (eight months ago) link

It'd be nice to have some kind of happy medium instead of everything always being extremely something or other - the driest / wettest / hottest / coldest / sunniest / dullest / windiest ever.

i liked the heatwave

plax (ico), Thursday, 27 August 2020 21:21 (eight months ago) link

I like weather and am enough of a misanthrope to prefer it when there are far less fair-weather wankers about ruining the glorious desolation of places I like to go. Some loudmouthed middle class Karen yelling: Excuse me your dog is scaring my child and bunches of pissed up middle-class wanker-dads playing Rounders and giving snidey looks to Alex because he wouldn't throw their ball back are what I saw last time it was sunny. Rain get's rid of arseholes consistently, and the all-weather regulars are a much better class of people.

calzino, Thursday, 27 August 2020 21:31 (eight months ago) link

Agree. The best time for a walk is when it’s raining

calstars, Thursday, 27 August 2020 21:53 (eight months ago) link

i can't remember the last time it really rained in this godforsaken desert and i long for it. on the other hand i know if we do get rain i'll be squeamish about it and want to stay indoors.

"godforsaken desert" sounds so cool, but I don't think me nor my panting labbie would last very long in that kind of terrain, but can totally understand the attraction.

calzino, Thursday, 27 August 2020 22:19 (eight months ago) link

the climate is the best part really, it's the culture that's the real desert

Give me a Chad Smith-type feel (map), Thursday, 27 August 2020 22:23 (eight months ago) link

well here we have a mostly perpetual rain sodden cultural desert where you better not talk bout sophistication until you've bin to Leeds. Could be worse tho!

calzino, Thursday, 27 August 2020 22:41 (eight months ago) link

quite fancy living in a desert honestly. been rained on too much.

don't mind some light rain and a breeze for a spot of perambulating. just no gale force inundations, please

calzino, Thursday, 3 December 2020 22:49 (five months ago) link

I usually walk to and from work tbf. I don't have a problem with heavy rain because you know it's not going to last and you can shelter from it but this miserable pissy rain that doesn't look that heavy but you end up more drenched than with the heavy stuff because it lasts for fucking hours and it's that steady constant Chinese torture thing ugh.
