Storming weather

Before I begin bloggint this post, I have to admit, to warn my readership about it if theye xpect something half interesting: this may be a very banal, uninteresting topic, something epically trivial, especially here in England. But trivial topics are maybe the more relevant topics for a blog about irrelevant and trivial stuff. Blogging is often putting words into trivialities. I tried to find a grey and gloomy picture to fit the topic and the circumstances. If the post is not very interesting, at least the picture will be ncie to look at. Rain can be beautiful and bring character to places. There is an aesthetic to gloomy weather and I hope the picture illustrates this.

Anyway, so this is what I wanted to talk about: the weather is very temperamental and prone to heavy rains and today even storms. Yesterday it poured rain, today it poured rain. And there are forecasting more heavy showers this weekend. Today I was lucky enough to walk to work and then to home when it was not raining, but yesterday there were heavy showers during my whole commute and in between. I did enjoy it, somehow, somewhat. It has character. Rain can be monotonous, but heavy showers are not really. They can be disruptive, but they sure are impressive.

I love listening to rain showers, especially at night. Impressive photo :-)

Yes, the rain... we are to receive much needed rain... maybe even more than that, for the next few days.. things have been pretty dry... unusual.

It is a beautiful photo and provides a wonderful atmospheric background to your post. Life consists of trivial things, but they add up to make life lovely. A rainstorm, a packet of peanuts, a sandwhich, a birthday memory:-)
