    Default ******* rain

    So managed to book a day off today in order to pack the tent stuff and wash the car. It's not been done properly since around the 20th of July.

    Just checking the forecast It's been raining all night and will continue up to 1.00. That's 1.00 AM tomorrow morning.

    More rain at Banbury tonight and tomorrow and then rain most of the day at Silverstone on Sunday.

    The camping forums have people abandoning holidays and then having the tents in the garden for days on end trying to get them dry. It rained for 16 hours on our one and only trip so far in the 24 hours we were on the site.

    This has been the worst summer for rain I can remember.

    I know mate. If we had the space I'd get our single made into a double.

    Really wanted to try out the wax I bought last week but that ain't going to happen. My neighbour has his own garage (as in commercial premises) I'm thinking of giving him a bell and asking if I can borrow a corner of his undercover storage area. The local VX dealer stores all of the new motors there.

    edit: Yeah I'm a bit grumpy at the minute. The water rates went up yesterday too.

    I agree Steve, never known rain like it ! these heavy showers are so persistent my car is in need of a good clean, wanted to do it before I start my new job on Monday but it's looking unlikely now if the forecasters are right

    I've got a 6 x 3 m gazebo, I was gonna put that up and drive the car in but it's too windy - cant win

    At Ians now.... so far managed to give the car a once over. Cleaned and waxed the wheels. Ians started to wax the roof and the rain started to come down, so we called it off for now. Need to get under the arches and clean them properly. Probably do that tomorrow. We got Ians car front into the garage and he put another coat on his front splitter... So hopefully we should be able to do a bit more round here and then finish off whatever is left for tomorrow.
