The Weather - Harescombe, Glos.

I've been watching the local weather forecasts closely for a few days. Up until yesterday, today was forecast as dry, sunny and a light breeze. Even last night it had only changed a bit, then showing a little rain moving in late evening around 9pm-ish.

So the decision was made and off I went to Harescombe this morning in the glorious sunshine with blue skies and fluffy white clouds.

Once I had set up it was so warm I was sat there in a T-shirt and I actually applied some sun block.

Within half an hour some greyer clouds wafted over. Then some more, and soon the blue skies were gone altogether. It became chilly enough for me to go and get my coat from the car.

Then by about 9:30 a few raindrops started to fall. So it was up with the brolly and wait for it to blow over. Only it didn't blow over. It peed down non-stop for the rest of the day. I ended up packing up in the rain about 3pm and having to spread out all my sopping wet gear to dry when I got home.

So to the weather forecasters of the world I say this: "YOU F(*^!&^%$ ) B(*^&$ C)(%$" :flipa:

Oh, and I caught a couple of decent bream and a couple of smallish carp.
