Storms ahead

Quite a deluge the other evening. I managed to dodge rain showers and thunderstorms as I walked across London from Elephant and Castle to St Pancras, sat down snug, smug and dry on the train home from there, and then….sat in a tunnel going nowhere for the best part of an hour.

With these clouds, it almost looks like a replay of the Great Fire of London….

A train journey which would normally take around 25 minutes lasted over 2 hours. Made so much less stressful by listening to the guy in the seat behind me phone just about everyone he knew to tell them he was running late, having a dreadful journey, should’ve got an Uber, etc. At least he kept his mask on while he was talking…….

The following day, no trains – so back on my bike, which is currently a much nicer way to travel. I’m a fair weather cyclist though, so let’s hope this type of weather doesn’t make a habit of occurring too frequently.
