Slippery when wet
About to head off to pick up J, looked out of the window - clear. Just the fleece, then.
Just too far to turn back, it started raining, but not heavy. Looked at the sky, reckoned I could make school without getting too wet, and it looked like the ones we had yesterday - not more than 5 minutes and it'd be past.
So I'm under a tree in the playground with J, and the hail starts. Hard. Very hard.
We popped back into the school for a few minutes. By then the moisture was soaking through the fleece and my hair was dripping drips down my face.
It slackened so we set off for home, getting not much more wet really.
Of course it's stopped now.

In the space of 2 miles I just went from dry, sunny, roads to near-zero visibility aquaplaning, and back to dry and sunny again. Daft weather.

I really need to go and get some supplies - lemsip, cough sweets, buttercup syrup, tissues - and to post Adorable Niece's birthday card. It's raining like a rainy thing. It stopped briefly about 20 minutes ago, but then started again harder.

Heavens opened here in Poxford just after 4 p m and oh how it /poured/.

It always seems to do it at school home time.

Maybe where you live. Round here I've been beginning to form a theory that the school start&end times and the twice-yearly clock changes are designed to minimise schoolchildren's exposure to precipitatory wetness.

It certainly seemed to be the case when we lived in Cardiff. If it was going to rain, it invariably did it at around 15:30, just in time for the children (and their parents) get soaked.
