It’s raining. I mean really raining. It’s so dark that I can’t get a photo….
So here’s one from a few years back. A duck getting wet. A Swiss Duck. A Duck that Hawklad would feed on a morning.
So imagine that weather but then think Yorkshire. Maybe replace the duck with some Rhubard. Now you get the picture.
Living in Yorkshire we are kinda use to the rain. I was bored this morning so I counted. It’s a thing us Accountants do. We can usually count to TWO without too many errors. So yes I counted the anti rain contents of our small house.
9 umbrellas – NINE – all of them boring. I need a cool one.
8 waterproof coats – EIGHT – plenty for any visitors needing a spare one.
4 pairs of waterproof trousers – bizarrely all the wrong sizes for me and Hawklad. One pair is so massive it’s even too big for me. The kind of trousers that you would need to take several steps before they moved.
3 waterproof hats – so one spare for a visitor. Some Yorkshire rain can seem to travel upwards so an extra layer of protection is needed in addition to an umbrella.
3 Wellington Boots – THREE – we are missing one. Stern look at the dog. But ok for a three legged race..
Add to that various waterproofing and anti rust products. It gets that wet here that sometimes even the skin needs even more help with the wetness. Maybe that’s the reason I have a face perfect for radio.
Now it’s time to try and mop out the pool forming next to the back door. We always have a bucket and a mop positioned there.
So completes another brilliant advert for the Yorkshire Tourist Board….
