Default Rain stops play!

I have a client's laptop n the bench here for a spot of fettling. They have no backups of quite a lot of important data on it so I was going to ride across to Oswestry to get an external hdd for them. Think it can wait till Monday now as it's peeing with rain and I really can't be arsed with waterproofs and a subsequently filthy bike today.

Don't blame you. It's threatening to rain here and I just know that as soon as I get half a mile from home it will tip it down.

Frustrating thing is that the two days I spent in the garage were warm and sunny.

Same here, stuck at work yesterday, bright and sunny. Off today, but woke up to grey overcast sky and intermittent showers.

The odd thing is - it never actually rained here today. It came really close a few times (sudden cooling, darker clouds, gusty winds) but it passed every time. Spooky really. Manged to get quite a lot of spring pruning done and got the onion sets in after all so on balance not too bad a day really.

There's always Sunday - weather looking OK for tomorrow, according to the so-called experts at the Met Office

Woke to grey skies and rain, where's the sun and warmth they forecast!

Brightening up here, watching cycling on Eurosport, bright sunshine in Belgium. How ironic

Glorious day here. Started it with a cracking 7 mile run with two fellow canicrossers in sunshine a gorgeous scenery. Home, showered, into the bile kit and off out in the sun for a favourite ride. The only rain was this weird torrential 45 second downpour on the way back up Morfa Mawddach and then a bit of drizzle coming over the bwlch from Dolgellau to Dinas Mawddwy. Other than that a lovely warm spring ride.
Sorry Mav!
