Oh look it's raining again
Gardens a bog,Posted 4 years ago
Trails are littered with downed trees due to the water logged ground and the high winds
Dogs getting pissed off having to be hosed down after every walk
Roads are flooded and covered in crap washed off the fields.
And next weekend there’s going to be another wet one with a minimum of 20-30mm of rain.
We do live on a small island surrounded by large oceans and have a warm winter climate considering our latitude. Predominant winds blow off the Atlantic. You’d have thought we’d be used to such varied and inclement weather by now. Hopefully we’ll have a prolonged cold spring and another blistering hot summer like last year.Posted 4 years agoohnohesbackMember
I’m astonished how much water the soil has absorbed recently; though If I were to tread on my sodden veg plot in a vain attempt to weed it I’m sure that a spring would erupt wherever I trod. How much more can it take? This is bound to have an adverse effect on arable farmers.Posted 4 years ago
Haven’t been out on my bike for any distance for a couple of months, it’s a quagmire, tried that Road biking, hated it, it’s just an accident waiting to happen if the cars don’t get you the pot holes will, I have never been so depressed in a winter SAD syndrome squared exponentially spoke to someone else on the phone today actually considering topping himself (he has other issues) very difficult to be upbeat for him..Posted 4 years agomrblobbySubscriber
hear ya, get yourself an indoor trainer, keeps the legs spinning and the ‘dolphins pumping!
Been using a big SAD light in front of the turbo this winter, I think it does actually help a bit.
It does seem bad down there. Trying to find somewhere that isn’t waterlogged to walk our dog when visiting the inlaws is a pain. Riding must be awful.Posted 4 years ago

Whatever happened to the snowmageddon we were promised by the Daily Express? I can’t believe they got it so wrong.
You didn’t think the city boys were publishing ‘selective’ long range weather forecasts to get higher wholesale gas price futures then?
Seemed pretty obvious to me at the time.Posted 4 years ago

Still getting out twice a week even in the rain. The trails need to be carefully selected, my bike and gear is in a constant wash/cover in mud cycle, but the alternative of not riding, for me, is worse.
Hate this time of year, and riding my bike, even in this weather, helps immensely.Posted 4 years agorusty90Member
