We've had a very heavy thunderstorm causing the local big Tesco to be flooded, and close.

Not the one at Broughton Rd?

.


Me! Just curious, my son started working there a couple of weeks ago.




Yes that one. It's quite an old building  (maybe 1970s) by supermarket standards.

The young folk who work in there are very pleasant. DM me his name and I'll look out for him. If I see him being nice to an old lady I'll report back - Granny Muriel, whose son (my pal) is being buried tomorrow, is in there most days with her wee dog.

I'll have to tell him to be extra nice to her then. I've dm'ed his name. He used to lurk on  Talkback but that was some years ago; not sure about now.

A particularly stormy spell of weather for the time of year. An unusually deep Atlantic depression crossing right over the country brings strong winds and heavy, squally showers.

It is unusual for Southern UK to have gale warnings this early in August. With climate change, the probability of such storms increases.

It's been hosing it down for most of the evening. This is not normal East of Scotland weather, in the summer months.

Today reminded me of a classic summer day in Northern Ireland; ten minute downpour then bright sunshine. Rinse and repeat.

I'm afraid the medium range forecast doesn't get any better either. Not quite so windy, but far from good summer weather, with plenty of rain.
