    Its so bad. Its been four weeks of miserable, rainy, gloomy, horrible weather and we're into Spring now - it was 22 degrees this time last year.

    Someone must know

    No but in all seriousness, it's because the government imposed a hosepipe ban. The weather always mocks the government...whenever they impose one it pours for weeks!

    I care because it stops me from doing outside things. If I played xbox all day, then I guess I wouldnt care.

    It hasn't been too bad for the last week up here in the North West.

    Strange because Lancaster NEVER seems to get nice weather

    I turned off the sun because I have essays and exams to revise for and the temptation to go outside would be too strong.

    Whilst I NORMALLY wouldn't agree at all with a Tory, you have an extremely valid point here

    Was out with the dog at 6am this morning. The grass was very dewy, and it had not rained all night.

    Apparently we're set for the wettest May on record?

    I wish it'd stop though, I'd like to be able to wear summer clothes BEFORE I go on holiday in September. I'm still in boots, jeans, jumpers and jackets! Winter wear!

    Also, it's frigging cold. I don't usually have to put my dressing gown and slippers on in May. And I can't open my window without freezing, so my room gets really stuffy. We're still having to put the heating on for an hour or two a day.

    And I'm still drying laundry inside because the weather's so awful! It takes so much longer.

    I'm beginning to dread that unseasonably warm weather we had a few weeks back WAS our summer

    That's my moan du jour anyway!

    You make it sound like its torrential rain 24/7. Man up and get on with what you're doing.

    It has been raining persistently. They cancelled the cricket game I was going to see! Its those kinds of things that are impractical and not enjoyable in constant rain; especially when you don't expect it.

    It's just a tiny bit of an issue because when you're a student it's a pretty expensive problem to still be using the heating a) because it's cold, b) because it's damp and c) because you need to dry laundry / umbrellas / clothes that got rained on. If it's raining and you're carrying books / papers / laptops then you have to get a bus to get to the library or lectures, which is more expense.

    And that's just the practical side. Given we're all coming up to the end of exams / finals / dissertation hand ins, a lot of people would like to be celebrating. Let's forget the idea of a bbq for a second, but anyway in this town all the student clubs have their largest areas outdoors with no covers. Not only is it freezing, but it's probably also pretty wet, and not a lot of fun. I only get a week between my final coursework hand in and my dissertation starting, so I'd like to be able to enjoy it. Call me picky :P

    It's the English equivalent of a rain dance. We should irrigate the world's deserts by imposing hosepipe bans on them
