The Rains Came


The rain it raineth on the just
And also on the unjust fella:But chiefly on the just, because
The unjust steal the just's umbrella.

Yes, I just popped outside for a few minutes and have come back inside utterly drenched.

Rog said...

And you've solved the picture-in-post conundrum!

Scarlet Blue said...

Appalling isn't it? I'm quite fed up with it now.

It sounds like you are having a deluge there, my dear...The weather is so weird here. In fact, it is weird, EVERYWHERE!!!
Hoping iy has let up some, ny now, dear Pat....

Pat said...

Rashbre: it is relentless and made much worse with the wind which finds all our nooks and crannies.

Rog: I wish! The only part of my anatomy involved were my fingers. Crossed

Scarlet: Couldn't hear a word Columbo said for the wailing of the gas fire.

Naomi: I dread to think the damage it must have caused and travelling on the roads must have been horrendous.

Macy said...

Meanwhile in what's usually a damp and grey Glasgow, we've been sitting out enjoying the sun. Strange times!

Pat said...

Jenean: it seems to have stopped thank goodness. Out come the winter woollens again.

Macy: I'm happy for you:)

Anon: I really should learn more signs other than :).

Mage said...

Not rainething here, but what a lovely few moments of description.

Macy said...

Pat - I've just seen the morning news! All j oking aside, it looks terrible down there!

Granny Annie said...

We too are experiencing rain. Lots of outside projects have to be placed on hold. I think my spouse likes that:)

Pat said...

Mage: happy you like it:)

Macy: my SOH has been absent since yesterday.

Grannyn Annie: spouses tend to welcome a spot of inactivity:)

Kim Ayres said...

Love the quote :)

Can't say I've noticed much more rain than usual for Scotland though

The Unbearable Banishment said...

I used to have this fantasy about living in England but someone (a Londoner) told me the weather would wear me down.

I just now had time to read your last post. So sad. I don't know how I would rise above it all if something like that happened to a family member. I would hope to find an untapped well of strength.

Sounds horrible. Time to resurface the roof.

Cheers.

Where's my first comment?

Pat said...

John: why do you keep hiding in the spam box?

Pat said...

Randall: that's what they said when we moved in - in '85.
This is a window and only happens when it is frightful weather with the wind in a certain direction.
We chose not to change the old style windows so can't grumble.

Marjolein said...

Same here, a lot of rain and both windows in the sitting room are leaking. Counting the days till we're moving to our (hopefully? apparently?) non-leaky new house! And here's hoping for a proper, warm, dry summer!

Pat said...

Marjolein: fortunately I have tons of old towels for mopping up:)

Guyana-Gyal said...

I keep old newspapers to soak up the odd leak in the fairly new zinc roof. I was quite surprised to discover it can happen!

Pat said...

GG: flat roofs are the worst - like we have on the garage and sun room.
