Rain ?


I've been having a 'moment', remembering the 'old days' ..... when computer games consoles took hours to warm up ..... when you could only walk a yard from the telephone before either the curly wire yanked you back or the big, plastic phone itself crashed to the floor.
 
 
I also find myself reminiscing about Sunday evenings sat with my cassette-player held tight against the radio waiting to press record when a great song played on the Top 40 chart show, hoping that no one would yell for me or bang on my bedroom door (or the police would arrest me for such an illegal practise)
 
 
Then I tried to remember the last time it rained .....
 

 
Most of these photos were taken on the 26th January ....

 
Is it really that long since we had rain ..... ?

 
If we'd know then what we know now, we could have harvested every last drop ....

 
We shouldn't really be in drought mode with a hosepipe-ban already.
 
 
I'd almost forgotten what rain looks like ....

wonderful photography we had a "spit" of rain this afternoon but it was nothing really we need rain and lots of it.

Oh, that doesn't sound good. We had a horrible drought here last year. It was not fun, or pretty. I hope your drought ends soon.

Ah, rain. Yes, I seem to remember that too, I think. A vey light drizzle yesterday (which I put down to your very kind offer on twitter) but drizzle isn't really what I'm after. I had to refill both water-butts at the greenhouse the other day - in March!!! D
