That was a hell of a drive home. In the fifteen minutes I went from blazing sunshine to torrential downpour back to sunshine. Haven’t seen rain that heavy for a long time. Normally I’m happy of any excuse to use manic-speed-wipers, but it came very close to blocking my view entirely. In town the drains had exploded and at least one road was close to impassable, after only ten minutes of rain.
Still, some people have seen more water today. What a segue that was. David Walliams swam the English Channel for Sport Relief, taking only ten hours. You can ‘congratulate’ him by texting DAVID to 82125, which donates 70p (of a £1 total cost1) to Sport Relief.
