Gulf stream is the main thing that keeps the UK temperate. Take that away, & we'd turn into Northern Sweden overnight.

I feel your weather pain, it's minus forty Celsius here today with the windchill. In Saskatchewan the other day -67 with the windchill. That's like friggin Mars!

Not a good idea to take a pee outside then - that would be "weather pain" ;(

Quite correct. All the rain falling at once is a major headache.

Somehow the rain blasted off all the paint off the exterior door to my music studio, and then soaked into the wood. (solid wood door as one would have on a studio).

It's still quite wet, but I suspect the door will be completely warped when it dries. And as such, it will be completely *bleeped*.

I'd rather have it the other way round.

Not in the least, my friend. Just Life :)

I'm sick of all the rain, the fields are sodden and the manege is like a swimming pool.
