A little bit wet…

It’s been ages since we’ve had proper rain here in London. We’ve had a few drizzly showers, but it’s mostly been dry…until yesterday!

I was on my way to meet a couple of friends – when I left work, it was raining, but not too heavily. Two minutes later, the rain had turned torrential, so I took shelter at a bus stop. Thirty seconds after that, there was thunder, lightning, torrential rain and hail. My shoes filled up with hailstones!

And to top it all off, when the hail and rain had subsided a bit and I decided to make a break for it and leg it to the Tube station, a taxi went past and splashed most of the biggest puddle you’ve ever seen all over me. My feet still hadn’t dried out by the time I got home at 11.30pm! Yuck!

  1. boo! sorry about the soaking from the thoughtless cab driver! & to think your feet didn't dry out for hours! that's even worse!!! i must tell you how much i love your posts about London weather & the environs… it makes me feel as if we were still renting the "flat" near the So Kensington tube station. someday we'll be there again.
