to point out that we have had 3 months without real rain on the Eastern side of the country

I gather some other parts have had recent rain.? Have you nicked all the rain in the West?
Our farmers are having sleepness nights; and if crops fail, |I dont like to think what basic food prices will be next winter.
couplesd with that, it was so cold this morning I put my winter coat back on ...and slept indoors last night.
If we get desperate are you going to sell us some cut-price water
And set up a cheap rate POTATO EXCHANGE SCHEME?

We haven't had that much rain over here either to be honest (I'm on the north west coast nr liverpool) and we've had a couple of showers in the last few days. Even the thunerstorm last weekend only lasted an hour and it was that warm the pavement dried within 30 mins
I understand what you're saying though, it must be awful to watch carefullt tended crops die because of a lack of water

slept indoors?? where do you usually sleep?
we are in east kent and i can't remember the last time we had proper rain, we have had a coupl of light showers overnight in the last fortnight, but no real rain
It is worrying me, i suspect a hosepipe ban is just around the corner - i am already using water used to boil veg, to water the garden!

whats rain? we live near perth, australia and haven't had that much rain for the last year. we had the driest winter on record last year, followed by a very long and hot summer and still no rain in sight. the last day we had a shower was just over 4 weeks ago. are dams are only 23 per cent full.
if you have any rain can you dig a hole for us to get some to!!

"I must sleep indoors tonight" is one of the oldest comic quips in ze book
I had the same problem with "Did you get free underfelt with that suit"
Great post, Ben5...never had one from abroad before to my knowledge
How is the next test series going to go with super England?
