Well, the tail-end of that hurricane (Alex?) has finally hit Scotland with a vengeance, and after a few days of blissfully hot weather it is now chucking it down here. Roads flooded, rivers flooding, people injured, cars with foolish drivers driving into deepish water and getting stuck  Big grin
Thanks for sending the hurricane this way
Personally I blame George Bush and John Kerry  Laugh out loud
Anyone else in the UK having horrid weather?

Kirkie..I always told you you're way too untalented to flood anything larger than your own underpants...but to get the help of GWB and the ketchup group, that is even below you  Big grin

Well it's P*ing it down here again for the fourth consecutive day (it stops raining for about an hour a day), we've had a few tail ends of T-Storms pass by and it is quite hot.

Roads are flooding further south and at least it keeps the kids away, and them damn mopeds!
