Default England and Olympic Weather

The Olympics start in one week, has the rain stopped?
Anyone volunteering or working at the Olympics?

Still raining as I type in Kent, but supposed to get hot next week when the jetstream returns to normal. We'll see.

I have never known weather like this..

Its not "Realy Bad" unless your caught in a flood..its not even windy...its like being in a rain forrest...When its warm its orrible<<yes no "H"..How can you be cold and feel warm at the same time????

Even the birds look sad......On the fence with their heads down and water dripping off their tails...They don't need to speak the look says it all..They say its going to pick up a bit next week..we'll see...I was wondering if we were in for a few twisters...just for good measure..

Regards
M. Gregg

Don't know about you but I am sick of it already, the fawning, gushing, breathless hyperbole on the so called news - and that's just on the BBC/ABC. I was rather hoping that Murdock had spat the dummy and refused coverage, but alas, no respite on the 'other' channels.

Please, please let it be over soon....

My God man, I hope you are not suggesting that they allow those lycra-lemmings on to THE island. Sacrilege! Can you even imagine a TT with cycle lanes and speed limits? Life would just be a hollow mockery...

my folks are sick to the back teeth with the weather, bordering on a national disaster. It's one of the reasons I emigrated. Mind you, the best part is that I don't have a TV

I'm pretty sure my kids would think it really cool to have a rocket/missile pod on the roof.
