Heavy rain was forecast here too but we didn't get it. It's been dry all day although with big dark clouds.
May come tonight.
I'm sorry you've had it Irish. It isn't as if we need any more just yet.

Raining here all day and cold with it! You look as if you have had more than your fair share hope it dries out quickly for you.

14 Oct, 2008

I guess your dogs are fed up with all the water ?
Are you forever drying off muddy paws? :o)

15 Oct, 2008

 

~Hi Eileen
It's not raining and reasonably mild this morning but filthy in the woods-very soft and squelchy and lots of slippery leaves!
A few dry days would be welcome!
Did your daughter get to try a Bahama Mama? ~

15 Oct, 2008

 

We have a gale blowing and up to a few minutes ago the rain was going past sideways! I hope it will calm down before I have to take Henry out, I hate having rain in my face. No gardening at the moment!

15 Oct, 2008

 

TT the dogs, the kids, myself lol we are all fed up with it

15 Oct, 2008

 

few good dry days would be great Arlene, no ciara never had a Bahama Mama lol

15 Oct, 2008

 

aw Spritz i hope that gale has eased off by now?

15 Oct, 2008

 

Hi Spritz
I'm sorry to hear that it is so bad where you are-am about to take the dogs out well wrapped up, and there is even a bit of a watery gleam up there. Although it is dry and mild there is thick cloud gathering.......When my daughter was at Bath Uni we used to ring her when it was pouring here and she would say-but it's sunny here!
I swear the weather changes the minute you cross the Severn Bridge!

15 Oct, 2008

 

Thanks Arlene - I took Henry out to post F1Crazy's seeds, and it actually stopped raining! However, the wind is screaming round the house and it's a cold one. I am sure it's changed direction since yesterday! I am still going to wrap up and plant my new Clematis, though! Next job was going to be leaf clearing - NO CHANCE!!!!!
I hope that Irish has it a bit better..... Do you Irish?

15 Oct, 2008

 

hi Spritz, its not raining and we even have a wee bit of sunshine

15 Oct, 2008

15 Oct, 2008

 

Oh! Poor things... time for some french drains! but where to drain when everything is soggy!? Have a talk with the weather man, Irish! keep an eye out for animals grouping in twos...lol. Was reluctant to "like" this photo as you might think I was enjoying your dispair...Not So..I assure you, decided that to "like" the photo would express my support and concern... hoping for drier times soon!...
