Heavy Rain


The weather forecast is not too good for tomorrow and Thursday - black exclamation mark in the middle of a little yellow triangle and all that. We have to go out. Nine down and twenty eight to go. We yanked a dozen or so branches and bits of trees out of the brook on Sunday to try to stop them getting jammed in the tunnels of the bridge - the water was just about level with the road we have to travel. Fingers crossed it won't be flooded tomorrow and Thursday. Whoever you are that's doing that rain dance, please can you stop now, we've had enough. Love Molly xx

  3. I think we must have had next year's rain already. Sigh..... Molly, I do hope the weather isn't as bad as forecast and that the rest of your journeys will be in kinder conditions.

    1. Somebody up there was really looking after us today. Had we have been half an hour later getting home there would have been no way that we would have been able to get through the water.

    1. We've got through ten appts now - so they're getting less every day. That must have been a flash flood - 82 is hot

    1. Or better still - send a little bit over for Claire and Carole in Oz - looks as if it's cooking it up over there.

  10. Hey Molly, you can send some of it over this way to wash away our heat. Although we had heavy rain on Saturday I wouldn't mind a little more.
    We're heading towards 36deg. today and 39deg. is forecast for Christmas Eve, that's about 10deg. over my comfort level!!
    Stay safe and dry in your travels......

  12. Sometimes I think we are all just going to float away! Hope you manage to avoid having to go out in it -- baking sounds a much better idea.

  16. I personally would love loads of snow rather than rain this tmie of year :)

  17. Thank you for commenting OE. I agree, snow is much prettier. A bit of a bind when you have to travel through it but a lot more fun than grey flood water.

  18. Keep safe, Molly. More rain here, too. I have a heavy cold so haven't gone out in it for the past few days and I'm trying to get better for the weekend when family arrive for the Christmas period.

  19. A cold is horrible any time but especially at Christmas. Linda, hope you're better soon
