Surprise Rain

Recommended Posts

So i was chilling out not doing much and my dad comes in and said its getting black out the back so i looked and all i could see was nice blue skies with the moon poking its head out! I said what are you chatting about, 'go out the back and have a look for yourself.'

so i did and this is what i saw... (Video)

about 10 minutes after i filmed the first part of the video the heavens opened and it was almost pitch black at about 8:15 pm was awsome lasted for about an hour and then let up a bit but carried on raining till about half past 10.

apprently this had lightning it as close as luton but i never saw any lightning or heard any thunder, but none the lesss it was awsome.

heres a met office weather snippet!

ha ha! Oh get the ducks out, they dont mind a splash or two.

That roof cant be what it seems then, how many roofs (new) leak/cave in during a downpour, dont remember it happening to other BB houses? and they have had some deluges over the years and im sure once the garden got flooded, i hope everyones ok and the cameras are fine. just in time for papers today?

This must be the rain that caused the Big Brother house to flood leading them to being brought out for a short time.

Thats one way to end the series I guess.........

There is no such thing as suprise rain in Britain. :air_kiss:

More seriously, this caught me out too, I've taken my eyes off the weather lately, seems like the worst skirted West of here though.
