Tuesday Photo Challenge – Weather

This week’s Tuesday Photo challenge is about the weather.
Well, we are certainly having a lot of that today!

Us Brits tend to waffle on about the weather as it’s a good ice breaker to start conversation, though I prefer dogs! We’re never satisfied, it’s either too hot, too cold, too wet, or too dry.
Last week we had soaring temperatures, rooms were airless, and clothes were discarded within an inch of indecency.
These past couple of days, gardens have been joyously welcoming the rain whilst us humans moan and groan inside our homes.

Having to venture out in bad weather was the norm on the boat as we had to take Maggie out. Our yellow suits not only kept out the rain but also the wind, so although many people laughed at us, we were snug and dry as they dripped on deck.
I’ve never been able to get on with carrying a brolly as you could guarantee that if I tried to put it up it would either attack someone in the eye or convert me to a Mary Poppins lookalike and land me flat on my face.
I remember years ago handbags were designed with an umbrella pouch, but I suppose that’s old hat now (which is another thing I can’t usually get on with).

I’ve often wondered where the saying ‘Raining Cats and Dogs’ came from.
I like Frank’s picture.
Raining umbrellas is much more colourful on a dull day!


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
