(My drive is very weedy indeed)

It's been very humid all week
'What we need is a good thunderstorm to clear the air' everybody keeps saying.
The storm came this morning. Now it has passed.
The air has not been cleared at all. It still feels like the lily house at Kew.
But the sun is shining.

  2. We had the thunder about an hour ago and it's still so humid. We have a days of alternating sunshine and impressively heavy showers.

  3. Im not surprised that your drive is full of weeds with all the rain you've been getting over there. I shall try to bring to sun with me when I go back to Wales to visit family in August. :D Have a great Thursday!

    1. It's nice of you to blame the rain for my weeds but I'm afraid they're mainly so bad because no-one ever pulls them up.

  4. Phew! Makes me feel ever hotter than I already am. Current 28C here and cloudy which is only keeping this heat in.

  5. For once, Sue, you and I share a weather exactly. Global tolerance and improved international relations will surely come of it.

  6. Can't believe this weather. Started thunder and rain here at 9.30, went out at 10.15 to drive to Tenbury via Ledbury and had to turn back as both routes out of Ledbury were badly flooded in places and impassable for cars! Came home and have spent all afternoon working in garden in bright sunshine but sauna-like humidity - feeling peeved as I was supposed to meet friend for lunch ...

    1. Droitwich was flooded too. I was on my way to Webbs and had to turn back. Gorgeous now though.

  7. Oh I am so glad to see a drive that looks like ours, people walk past and gaze in awe at the weeds growing through the bricks, our village will never win the best kept village award while we are in it. The rain looks rather familiar. I have been playing in and out with the washing all day and then we got a storm. Husband came home who works all of seven miles away, and said they had had a 'few drops' there, weird.

  8. Gosh, here in Birmingham, it was the worst storm I've ever encountered. I was (trying) to teach a class of Year 3s... As a former teacher, I'm sure you can imagine what it was like!

    1. I'm sure they all continued to listen to you attentively and barely noticed the weather!

  9. Still waiting for the thunder to arrive here in the east - it feels very sticky and muggy and tonight I have to go and sit in a hot, sweaty school hall with lots of other hot and sweaty people to watch Amy in the school production of Oliver - I expect to loose a few pounds as it will be like a sauna!
    PS: love your previous post - I keep meaning to get organised like this, I do love the thought of an organised, well stocked freezer.

  10. I've never heard thunder that doesn't stop! Normally you get a break but this morning it was constant rumbling. Then torrential rain, poor visibility and loads of local flooding! Was rather glad I was in my lovely Freelander when I saw a bloke in a little Z4 trying to brave the flooding!!!

  12. Have taken to dragging round a small suitcase filled with Clothes Appropriate for the Weather of That Precise Minute - sou'wester, warm jumper, light floaty dress, wellingtons, sun hat, waterproof mascara, sun cream. Well not really - but I am very tempted I can tell you.

    Sadly the livid skies promise of thunder did not appear - and I was not distracted from balancing budgets and funding bids.

    So glad you weren't flooded out.

  13. We have the humidity but the threatened thunder didn't arrive. Now it is much cooler and actually a gorgeous evening. Hope your evening is cooler and less muggy than the day was

    1. Nice and breezy now with blue skies. The humidity has lifted. Apparently we did need a good thunderstorm to clear the air.

  14. Half our drive got washed into the street. We were glad of weeds that held some of the gravel in place!

  16. We were just driving through Worcestershire on our way to Weston-super-Mare this morning when that storm hit. It was quite scary I must say.
