I really love the rain, at my school all the girls tops go see through at the first sign of water. KerChing!!!

I live in Sussex, south england, we had a fair lashing today (our last day of school) the rain was Terrential but no major flooding in our area, Pheww!!

Best of luck to all your friends and families and that with the clean-up, Good old British weather!!!

I think Mark's right, & I also think that what you're trying to say is that because of atmospheric pressure changes in areas around the globe, all this rain we're getting normally falls in the Atlantic ocean, the Met Office have put this probability forwad & it seems to make sense, don't you think?

nah. its got a lot better over night. i can still make it to work
its just the centre of town and parts are still flooded. give it a day or 2 and things should be kind of back to normal, except for the unlucky people whose homes got flooded
