At last it's raining!
There's been a lot of gloomy talk recently about there being a drought here on the Ile, with some doom-mongers predicting that we'll be using stand pipes by the summer. That doesn't bother me, as I have an ample supply of Bollinger in the cellar to cope with all eventualities.
What is most pleasing, however, about the non-stop rain this morning is that it will have washed most of the barkers' nests off the pavement by the time I step out for my evening constitutional. There's always a silver lining!
