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 (nineteen 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 (nineteen 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 (nineteen years ago) link

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

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

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

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

I'm not saying I really thought that.

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

i still haven't experienced a touch of rain.

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

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

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

The rain coming down right now is quite amazing.

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

still no rain here :(

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

still gorgeous here :)

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

Ooh - I think it might have stopped!

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

seven years pass...

does this shit intend on stopping any time soon

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 (twelve 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.

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 (twelve 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 (twelve 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 (twelve 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.

Curious. Worst/scariest flooding I've ever driven through yesterday, on the Essex/Suffolk border, in a kind of "I wouldn't normally drive through that puddle but I'm not really sure what else I can do" sort of way. Eventually, stopped trying to get anywhere in particular beyond zig-zagging to *anywhere* that might be less wet.

djh, Saturday, 21 October 2023 10:56 (eight months ago) link

i am back on my bullshit viz reading "flooded shropshire" stories on the shropshire star twitter account (the only good account):

I used to go to the Gambia a fair bit and there the conversation was the opposite: you ask when it's going to rain and someone looks up and says, 'eh, April'.

Absolutely shat it down here last night. The rivers are swole af.

I would prefer not to. (Chinaski), Sunday, 5 November 2023 09:15 (eight months ago) link

a tornado warning in Scotland, never thought I would see the day

boxedjoy, Sunday, 21 January 2024 22:37 (five months ago) link

I left the landing window open, the roller blind was flapping like crazy and there were some leaves on my stairs. Quite fair to call this fucker as a named storm system, but it doesn't sound like 90 mph wind here, yet.

A “tornado watch” zone was issued for Northern Ireland as well as parts of Scotland and northern England by the Tornado and Storm Research Organisation (Torro) on Sunday afternoon. That means a “strong tornado” is possible in those regions.

see how it goes time

just walked about 5 miles in various levels of pissy rain, all of it miserable.

I've just come back from a two mile walk in the rain and of course now it's stopped and there's a hint of sun.

Dr Drudge (Bob Six), Monday, 6 May 2024 10:25 (two months ago) link

it's really pleasant here. I've got the pool set up in the garden, laundry drying on the line. It will be pishing it down by 4 pm, though.

vodkaitamin effrtvescent (calzino), Monday, 6 May 2024 11:01 (two months ago) link

it's nice here also and the chief sign of spring -- not weather but green leaves everywhere on the trees -- came in two weeks back “like a lion” (as all the rural saying-hedz er say)

mark s, Monday, 6 May 2024 11:27 (two months ago) link

I have a tree in my garden and when it starts flowering the bees form a drone orchestra, that's the sound of summer for me. Also there is a chocolate mining bees nest somewhere underground where my garden meets the brick wall. They are very chilled bees but I can't take my bins out with only my socks on because I have had my feet stung by them more than a few times. I don't take it personally though.
