Friday letters – the spectacular thunderstorms edition


Dear weather,  You certainly made your presence known last night with more rain in one night than we’ve had in the last few months put together.  The torrential rain, coupled with VERY loud thunder and bright lightning, meant that last night was quite a change from the warm, sultry nights we’ve been having for a while. 

Dear fire engine,  I am puzzled as to why you needed your blue lights flashing in the middle of the night on a deserted residential road?  There was no-one impeding your progress, so it can’t have been that.  Maybe it is just so that the people who have called you out can see that you are coming? I’m presuming you were responding to something that happened as a result of the lightning.  I’m not complaining, I’m just wondering.

Dear people, Why, after what has clearly been a night of unusual rainfall, do you not think that perhaps you should leave a little earlier than normal for the car journey to work?  Why leave at the usual time and then get all stressed and drive like an idiot when a flash flood has either blocked your progress, or slowed it down?  Some of you then cause more of a problem by crashing into other cars and holding everyone up for that reason.  It happens every time we have very heavy rain – why do you not learn?  Luckily I didn’t have to travel anywhere this morning, but apparently it was gridlock for miles around.

Dear collared doves,   I saw you again, this morning, on the fence, being very amorous.  Surely baby-making time is over now? 


Have a good Friday everyone!

  1. If your storm was anything like the one we had in Manchester the other night, it must have been a beauty. We’ve been using the buses to go into the city and back and it was taking about 30 minutes one way. But, after coming out of the train station to torrential rain and walking down to Piccadilly Gardens to the buses, it took us 2 hours to get back to our airbnb flat. The two-for-a-pound rain ponchos we bought at Poundland last week in Falmouth really earned their keep and did a fabulous job. We were completely dry when we finally walked in the door.

    You might have baby doves sometime soon!

  2. Ugh, they put their sirens on here even when there’s zero traffic – it’s deafening! Love the chickens 🙂

  3. We’ve had that kind of rain here this weekend….a whole summer with barely anything and then torrential rains! So strange.

  4. I guess me and Jude were in the right place! Just a little rain for me 🙂

Now it's your turn
