    While JIM was rubbing it in about the sun and only one day of rain in Spain we in Kent had some very cold days.. but this is the first proper rain we have had in a very long time.. every now and then it chucks it down.. but nowhere near enough.. My pond is 10" down and have never seen it in 10 years as low.

    Hose pipe ban starts on the 5th in two days time... still managed to sit in the garden this morning under the gazebo and have a coffee.. done that everyday this last week.. before that it was a bit cool.

    so hows the weather round the UK this afternoon.

    Rain all day here with high winds this afternoon. Coming your way tomorrow, Bob, and you're welcome to it :BigGrin: All being well the snow will have gone off the tops when we go over to Chester on Thursday.

    They say its going to rain here, must be coming from Thetford ( Watton ) I think Icantremember :Wink:

    On our local radio they said we need constant rain for a month to get the levels where they should be. :Sad:

    I cant believe they had 3 and a 1/2 months to sort this out, and they wait for us to come home. :Angry::Rofl1::Rofl1: Bob.

    It was pretty horrible up til about three today but is quite a nice evening here on the East coast of Scotland now. Hope it warms up for the weekend again. Glad your getting rain down south now, in a nice way:RollEyes::Rofl1::Smile:

    we are heading south for the weekend so hope it fairs up.

    A few showers in South Wales; parked up for the night in Hay-on-Wye on the way up to Chester - lovely sunset but temperature dropping rapidly and it looks like I might be waking up to rain or sleet :Sad:
