12/02/2016 Too much rain! Nigel buys a new bike.

Maximum temperature 12C, minimum 4C.   57 km/h W winds. 18 mm rain measured this morning. 276mm so far this year!
Driving to Champniers, the weather was foul....

Farmland at the side of the road, totally saturated.

Arriving at the cycle shop the rain stopped temporarily...

Take your pick in colours...

This looks more like a motorbike that a bicycle!

A very wide choice.

Nigel's new bike; anyone want to buy his old one?

As above.

Driving back home, the rain starts again....

Meeting up with a 2CV on a very wet road.

  1. That is a lot of rain you have had for 6 weeks. What is your annual average rainfall?

    1. The average over the last 3 years is 900mm a year. When we bought here 10 years ago we were told to expect water rationing as this is a drought area. It has not happened to us yet. Diane

  2. Well I hope it stops raining so that Nigel can ride his new bike without getting wet. A good way to keep fit.

    1. Not only the rain but the wind, it is all we can do to stand up at the moment outside! I have started walking, too many falls from by bike for one reason and another!!! T'other Diane

  4. I assume Nigel didn't ride the new bike home in the rain. Like you, I'll stick to walking.
