It's still pitch black outside and the rain is "peeing" down; really noisy against the window so I guess it's pretty windy again outside. I hear a lot of people may have to wait until NEXT week before they get their electricity back. One poor lady got stuck in her stair lift! So many sad stories of deaths and injuries....................... Yesterday was a lot calmer weather wise and managed to snap a few photos of the clearer skies.

Lynn's travelling up from Surrey to visit; so in true Mumsy style I'm worried about her driving in this rain. It doesn't matter how old they get we still worry don't we? I do hope she's remembered to bring the dressed crab we are having tonight....wouldn't want her to have to drive all the way back home...................LOL
We were lucky during last year's hot, dry summer and didn't have a hosepipe ban. I heard on the radio that one area of Essex has just had their ban lifted.......looking at the weather outside.....I don't think anyone will be watering their garden for a while!

I saw that one man was going out in the rain to use his hosepipe - just because he could - and for a few minutes of fame no doubt.

Rain here too - depite 'them' saying none, so I planned to go up the allotment.

Plan B - in the studio instead.

Have a lovely dressed crab - all the way from Surrey

We have Cromer crabs all the way from - the coast an hour away lol
