Weather in June

Today is the 12 June and the weather is terrible.   It has not stopped raining all day.   This year up until June, and especially over the last 3 months, the weather has been really dry with hardly any rain.  But over the last week there have been several heavy showers and if you are unlucky enough to get caught in one then you are likely to get soaked! 

I took this photograph looking out of my lounge window and wanted to show the rain pouring down the window.

    Poured down here too, which was sad. It was the fourth Hadfield Carnival in a row to be drenched.
