    January rainfall here at Malvern Next The Sea. 🙁
    Relentless. Almost no “steps” of respite since mid December. Everything is unbelievably soggy.

    I remember years ago reading in Richard’s Bicycle Book just how few times a year you would get wet if you used your bike for commuting.
    All well and good but he didn’t tell me that I’d get plastered in mud twice a day every day for months on end on my commute.

    I don’t know about that Ton, I don’t think my shoes have been dry all of January. Of course, you’re on the sunny side.

    Why does JAN14 not start from zero mm of rain, when the other years plot lines do? (remove that offset, and it looks less wet!)

    Is the first point on the x-axis Jan 1st? Wasn’t New Year’s Day quite wet IIRC?

    I work outdoors as a rule and I can honestly say its been a **** shocking month. If we’d been on a big site it would have cost us 1000’s as opposed to the 100’s on a smaller ongoing project.

    Bits of Cambridgeshire were very damp this afternoon. Bit too much water for the drains and rivers to contain. There’s a new inland sea at St Ives that looks very impressive.

    It was quite pleasant in Malvern yesterday, certainly an improvement on Saturday. 🙁

    See another storm forecast to arrive on Wednesday.

    I just reproofed all my waterproof gear and bought some new overshoes. I thought this might’ve been enough to keep us dry but even Sod’s law is being overturned.

    Still, I’m sure we’ll be seeing hosepipe bans brought in before long.

    This was in Limerick last night. Sort of real life copy of Jamie’s gif…

    Surely if the door is that watertight you’d have suffocated by now?
    Amazing picture though.

    That’s always been a bit of a flood spot, but recently the slightest bit of drizzle and it’s under water!
    There’ll be growing rice there before too long!

    Came up on my twitter timeline – @eewa2 – no reason to not believe it is what it says it is, you can see the floor is calf deep in water from the reflection.

    I went out for a ride (off road) yesterday and came back as clean and dry as when I left home…apart from sweat of course.
