When the rain started in early September I was really pleased. What with the drought and the reservoirs being at record lows I knew it could only be a good thing. However, my bonhomie has all but run out now.
Normally when people go on about how it's raining all the time, it's crap. It's actually just a perception. I know this because I'm a commuter cyclist. Even when people percieve that it's raining a lot, you actually don't get caught in the rain very often when you're cycling in or out, maybe once every 7 or 8 cycles.
This autumn though it's more like 2 out of every 3 and it's been like that for about a month and a half and to add to that it's now dark and windy and cold. I can deal with dark and windy and cold, but dark, windy, cold and wet pisses you off after a while.
