Just started here.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

No rain here, had a drizzle Weds night, but no impact on water butt levels

Dry in Liverpool but quite windy. 


EDIT.  I was wrong , there was a little dampness & a few puddles when I went outside.

Rain? I'm sure I used to remember what that was.
There's no vibrations, but wait.

The builders have got all our tiles off, that's why.  For the rest of the bank holiday weekend at least.  Sorry.

Yesterday morning, easily countable spots on the black bin; this morning, light shower that didn't even drip into the water butt.

Yay, some rain here. not heavy, just a few spots. Apparently it's going to go up to 1.3mm over the next hour. Unfortunately not enough to mean I don't have to water the balcony.

Reached here, too. Very gentle, with hardly a breath of wind - the kind of rain it's quite pleasant to ride in, until you get home and have to wash the bike.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

Today (like yesterday) is quite windy, and cool, and we’ve had a couple of brief but heavy rain showers. Normal May weather in fact.

Very heavy shower went through SW15 half an hour ago and another one about to come in now.

Bright sunshine but the colours on the radar are suggesting 80mm/hr.

Must be an awesome rainbow somewhere.

We were on the allotment when that went through. (We caught the edge of it.) I was bone dry five minutes after the last drop.

The burns and river levels rose surprisingly fast.  I was out on a wee run this afternoon and up the hills, the rivers looked as full as winter time.

There is one point on my weekend running route where there must be a spring under the road. There has been water there every time I've been passed since I started using that route regularly. Except this morning that is. Completely dry.

Used to think that of a hill near here, turned out to be a compulsive car-washer.  Some people...
