Yes it's raining. It has rained every day bar one for the last two weeks. Midlands summer, same as last year. And the year before. And the one before that. It's all this global warming you see... makes the weather the same as it's always been since forever. Quick, tax something.
I live in the Midlands... it was so hot and dry last Summer that it burned all the bark off the trees, they’ve still not recovered. Same for the rest of the country.
