    Still raining here but now it's that fine stuff that soaks you through.

    As long as it's 14-15C indoors, we don't need any heating on, which indeed has been the case, although we give the central heating a blast first thing in the morning, just to take a slight chill out the air, then the house is fine for the rest of the day.

    Anyway, after nearly 3 days of continually heavy rain (there's been lots of flooding in Wrexham, but we live at the top of a hill), it's much drier this morning, still raining but no where near as heavy, and the sky is brighter, so I think better weather is on the way, but not expecting much in that respect until Sunday!

    Still raining heavily here. Must go out in it though, things to do.

    As opposed to the torrential stuff, which doesn't?

    Well, if it’s a normal rain, an umbrella would help. This fine stuff just floats in the air and there’s no help unless you’re willing to wear waterproof overalls

    No worries... If she cleans it out and maintains it, then fair enough. Equally, that's my job with ours, and as soon as it's warm enough not to need lit, and we can save on fuel, it's off!

    Lol - but the use of an umbrella would have the same effect (i.e. keeping you dry) with the fine stuff, as it does with the heavy stuff - at the end of the day it's all (rain) water!

    The only difference is when either is accompanied by heavy wind, which then negates the use of a brolly, unless you want to go swanning off into the sunset like Cinderella

    Anyway, still raining and pretty miserable here, so going out for lunch later with my dad and a friend, who's down visiting from Glasgow, at Telford's Warehouse in Chester: https://www.google.com/maps/uv?hl=en...oiowCnoECAsQBg

    Awesome beer selection in this place, and the food is also top notch!

    How can a Scotsman not be familiar with wet rain?

    An umbrella's no use in wet rain because wet rain doesn't drop on you from above, it's all around you, like you are waking through a cloud. There's no defense against it.

    I was only in Scotland a week and I saw all types of rain multiple times, including wet rain

    Yesh, but one way or another, ALL rain is WET!

    If it's raining (fine or otherwise), and you wear a good, genuinely waterproof jacket (with a hood) and similar trousers, with suitable footwear, you'll NOT get wet!
