Oh my goodness this weather is shocking

We are just back in from a lovely walk up through forest tracks I was checking it out for doing my loop training in the morning, its been so water logged lately. Anyway it looked OK, that is until we had a cloud burst 5 minutes ago, the heavens have opened, we now have thunder and lightening. So much for my recce walk to check if the tracks were dry enough!!!

Lawd you guys are having the absolute WORST weather! Mind you, I'd love a downpour right now, thunder, lightning, and all the other bits...I haven't had measurable rain here in over 6 weeks.

Hopefully it will clear off enough to at least get out...but please be careful...a slippery slope out there now! Maybe Gene Kelly can dance in the rain, but even he would have thought twice about running in it!

Good luck!

Whereabouts are you ? It's nice and sunny here is Shropshire.

Hang on to that fine weather sfb350 I'm heading home to Shropshire on 25th taking our little granddaughter (10 yrs) with me to meet all my daft relations!! Will have one very excited child to contend with, she has never flown, never been on a train other than scenic railway. I'm just hoping and praying she will be OK with the large crowds and noise of busy stations and airports etc. She's a real little country bumpkin but gorgeous with it.

Rubbish isn't it, we had a heavy hail shower here at lunch time - dare I go out for an evening walk??

Oh forgot we had a bit of a hail shower about lunch time too. Then the heavens opened about 3.30. Static in the air was horrendous.

Isn't it just? This morning I went to go for the RFL and thought; shall I wear my trainers,new or old? or wellies, or flippers???

Well, I did go out for a walk, it was a wee bit sunny. Came in the door, looked out the window and the rain is bouncing off the path! just made it! phew

I don't mind the rain itself but slippery mud can be lethal.

Just seen from the Countryfile forecast that Edinburgh has only had 1.6 hours sun in the last 10 days. Suspect Aberdeen is much the same. Wasn't too bad this morning when I was out for a run but there have been showers on and off all day.
