The rain stopped raining at around midnight…..the day started well, welling with water. It’s still awful damp but the sun is out. I hope all the people with proper houses further down the Tees are insured. Nobody drowned or got their tits out so no front page coverage in the Telegraph.
Yesterday I mentioned that we could have had three feet of rain……I’m mad, Take everything I say with a large pinch of salt. I was trying to give a personal impression of how it felt. Two to three inches would be more accurate.
I have two or three weather sites running….Weather used to be important when I was working at sea….In retrospect I don’t know why I bothered or continue to bother. Bugger all one can do about it, on land or at sea. A law unto itself is weather. I’m still scrolling through the sites to find out how much water we had. I suspect I have to pay for rain gauge information.
I also hope that before a new Thames Barrier is financed they give priority to all the plebeians that live in the North.
I am a Daily Telegraph reader. Page four it is before the inundated folk of the North get a mention. I used to read the Guardian but found the cryptic crossword solvable. So switched to the Telegraph some twenty years ago. On a good week I finish it twice. I enjoy the challenge, okay I’m also a bit thick.!
The Telegraph used to have good sports coverage…..I have realised that niche sport reportage is now a thing of the past in the Telegraph. So from tomorrow it’s back to the Grauniad for me. Awful spelling and not broad sheet but I’ll retromorphise……..I’ll get uesd to the canhge. PHIL writes all about things living in it so it can’t be taht bad.
I had to go for another shop today……..Have I got Alzheimer's? No! I remembered the question mark. Forgot some messages yesterday though. That’s not dementia unless all politicians have it. There was no rush so I conducted myself with decorum in the store. Didn’t cause a fuss or mess up the auto checkout…… I went through a regular till. Didn’t call the check out girl a F…ing pleb. Good as gold I was.
Please Dithery can I have a job with you? If I mess it up I get mega bucks for life…..be great for me….and prove you are into expanding society. I am also aware that it’s naughty and counter productive to swear at Busies…..they hit one….hard!… It takes an haristocrat to swear at a man in body armour carrying a big stick…….or an idiot, I’m only a bit daft…
What’s the difference between a policeman’s truncheon and a magician’s wand?
The latter is for Cunning Stunts!
Water everywhere. The building in the background is Cleveland Bridge and Engineering. They have built lots of posh bridges all over the world…..a wonderful company for both purchasers and users of bridges. They guarantee to keep your feet dry.
I hope you are all well and not too damp.
