FFS! (Weather content)
It was nice and sunny and crisp with clear blue skies 10 minutes ago.
I get ready to go out to walk the dogs and then work on the car and now it’s grey, blowing a gale and chucking it down.
Really not enjoying life in the UK these days. Emigration is looking better every day.Posted 4 years ago
Rugby! Thanks for reminding me. Its been so long since I had a working TV (due to weather and living in a rural location with bad signal) that I have forgotten what it’s like to veg out with a beer and the rugby on a weekend.
I bet the TV aerial is going to fall off in the wind now I’ve said that.Posted 4 years agoStonerSubscriber

Did an 11 mile training run in the worst of Thursday’s weather. Actually fun running in the rain and possibly better than riding? Feet suffer though. I just remind myself that it’s liquid sunshine and that there is no such thing as poor weather, only poor equipment choices!!!!!Posted 4 years agoRichPennyMember
It may surprise you to know this but the current inclement weather isn’t affecting ALL of the UK and other places get “bad” weather too.
It does seem to be affecting all the important parts though. True that other countries also suffer from extreme weather, can’t say I’d be a bundle of joy in the 50 Celsius climate of Australia.Posted 4 years agoMrOvershootSubscriber

It’s just a piffling 31 degrees in Perth today. I would like to see some rain now, and that’s not something you’d hear me saying often in the UK.
TBH Rich it’s getting a bit pants @ the moment. I don’t mind a fair amount of rain, but the wind & rain is getting beyond a joke.
Most places here in the NW are bog like but nothing as bad as the SW!!
Just looking out of the patio window and the rain is falling at about 45deg from Chester 🙁Posted 4 years agobadllamaMember
Managed to get out and clean my 29er HT (my commuter) before it set in again this morning it is getting bloody frustrating though.
Need to start the training for our summer riding weekend in the lakes already a month behind due to the weather this year 🙄
Back to Ebaying and BF4 I suppose 🙂Posted 4 years agofootflapsSubscriber

I’ve managed to ride every weekend this year so far, been up early and made the most of the early morning weather. Been out in the rain a few times as well. Was defeated by the wind this morning, would have been horrific. Went into Manchester instead and nearly got taken out by a large wheelie bin being blown down the street. Exercise bike session this afternoon watching the rain go past the window horizontally, trail building in full waterproofs tomorrow again, it’s not fun anymore.Posted 4 years agoJohnClimberSubscriber
I’ve not ridden now for 2 weeks and 2 days (not that I’m counting).Posted 4 years ago
But that’s down to stitches not healing and complications, I may be off the bike for another couple of weeks but looking at the weather forecast to come I couldn’t have chosen a better time to be not riding.ononeorangeSubscriber
Managed 23 miles on the singlespeed this morning, had to turn back a number of times owing to fields being under several feet of water and (horrors) ride on the road occasionally. But I lived, to my surprise.
Sunny when I left so I assumed that as it was February it was no longer winter and so went out in short sleeved top and shorts. I must admit I was getting a little chilly after the Biblical storm I went through. Looking at the trees in the woods – they can bend a lot can’t they?Posted 4 years ago
Here we go again!
Need to go check the sheep (on foot at the new Landy has broken down 🙄 ) but wondering if I will have to go out of the back door as the wind is probably going to stop be opening the front door and the rain is running down the conservatory windows like a consant stream.Posted 4 years ago
