"Forecasters are warning people in Greater Manchester to prepare for a ‘summer soaking’ with some areas expected to see nearly HALF a months rainfall in just ONE HOUR."
No tornados. No need to wash the motor either.
last week and it was awesome. proper film
It's that the people who run Field Day will have prepared thoroughly for this eventuality.
That's the Day after Tomorrow
open air museum
But there isn't much shelter apart from the the museum bits, so take a coat or something.
The morning will be raining, by afternoon scatter showers, by 5pm sunny all through the evening
Sunny all day
Further heavy, thundery rain in places, a risk of hail and quite frequent lightning possible, but brighten later, some sunshine developing. Feeling warm and humid, but a little fresher later
DON'T RUIN MY APOCALYPSE MMP
It's supposed to clear up here after about 10.00am, though, so I'm not too fussed, tbh (I'll probably still be in bed before that).
to LOADS of rain and thunder and lightning
it seems like nothing wakes me up like having the resolve to make a recording of it (currently being used in a semi-improvised drone thing that I started last week)
best thing I've made this year, I think
The feedback loop between the white hot light of the sun and the bright white sands of Egypt made it difficult to concentrate on the expedition.
"God, it's so hot and bright out here," said Nigel, "I'm beginning to regret coming out here to Egypt in search of the lost pendant of Osiris with Doctor Zhivago."
Gordon gasped like a cow exploding, "But Doctor Zhivago is one of the greatest explorers of our time! He discovered the secret tomb of Osiris in Nepal, and climbed atop Mount Vesuvius and sent the Evil Fiend Ghost of Osiris back to his own foul dimension! We should be honoured!"
"I suppose," said Nigel, "I always wanted to be a writer though. My parents pushed me into global exploring. It was they who always wished to meet Doctor Zhivago."
"Stone a pelican, you cad!" exclaimed Gordon, "What better influence for your writing than an expedition with the great Doctor Zhivago! He discovered the secret tomb of Osiris in Nepal, and climbed atop Mount Vesuvius and sent the Evil Fiend Ghost of Osiris back to his own foul dimension! Hush now! Here he cometh!"
Doctor Zhivago emerged from his tent slowly and contemplatively like a cow from the scattered visceral remains of its exploded brother; he walked with staggering confidence to his two employees.
"Hitch up your tools," he said, his voice striking like God mooing, "I've got a new lead as to the whereabouts of the lost pendant of Osiris. I'll explain on the way."
Gordon and Nigel looked at one another, confused yet compelled -- like two cows wondering what the loud banging was all about. But there was no time for questions: Doctor Zhivago was already in the driver's seat of his jeep, had switched the radio on to Magic FM, and was not in the mood for waiting.
I went back and reread it after I posted that
All I will say is, seatbelts on erryone
it's going to need to up its game
first thing this morning. Which I slept through.
loads of gigantic puddles on the way home. Think I missed all the fun.
