It's rained all day here. And I mean all day. It was raining when the dog woke me up at 6am for a wee and it's still raining now. It rained when I took the dog for a walk (I got soaked). It rained when I did a maintenance check on one of my caches (it's dry) and it rained when I went out to feed the guinea pigs (they are dry).

I'm fed up with the rain.

Tell me it's been sunny somewhere today please. :unsure:

By the way the title of this thread is an homage to Charlie and Lola. Been reading with Steven and I think Charlie and Lola rule. But only people who watch CBeebies will understand. :sigh;

Oh yeah the wind last night was bad. Tomato plants a bit bent this morning. You've had the weather I've had today.

I took the dog out in it...

It's completely overcast today, but no rain. A few weeks ago it rained for three days straight, no joke, there was tons of flooding. I guess I'm no help.

Dawn

He's the dog who ate the crayons. I think he lives with Britchick.

We have had a Florida sky here today. Not a cloud in it all day. Mind you the temperatures didn't match Florida. :wave:

It did more than rain a little in Miami last night! :eek: In SoBe it was a torrential, long lasting downpour. We walked along Ocean Ave., looking for a place for dinner (each with our own huge umbrella) and I was soaked (not damp, not wet, wring out my clothes and leave a puddle soaked) from the waist down by the time we selected a restaurant and were seated. We were so wet they brought us extra napkins to use as towels! :eek:

It poured coming up the coast today too, but not all the way. Many areas are close to flooding. There was standing water in any place that had a depression capable of holding water. Winter and the dry season can't come too soon.

weekend was hideous - rain and wind all the flippin time. decided to drive to eastbouren to poke around the shops yesterday but couldn't find a parking space so came home. feel like the whole weekend was wasted.

That said Thomas and I did learn how to play pokemon cards yesterday so it wasn't a total waste

Well, I hate to be a little ray of sunshine...:sunny3:

But we had gorgeous weather all weekend!

Saturday was mostly overcast with the odd sprinkle of rain and about 84 degrees.

Sunday was bright and sunny with about the same temperature.

Don't worry. We're supposed to be flirting with 100 degrees again within a few days before beginning the official autumn cool-off. Overnight temps have cooled into the high 60s and low 70s, so no air conditioning needed at night. Finally! :D

Saturday morning saw us leaving SoBe quite early. We decided to drive to Key West and managed to have a sunny four hours or so there, shortly after we arrived. Had rain at the outset and the return, though.
