It lies, it does

Today's weather forecast for SG8 7EF on the BBC new website promises light rain.

I think they misspelt 'cold', because that's what we've got: a nasty cold rain.

(OK, now it's stopped, and clear sky is approaching rapidly.)

A day not to be on the Nith

I remember being in Dumfries during flood season, and being mightily impressed by the force with which the Nith can flow under Devorgilla Bridge.

Today, I guess I wouldn't want to be anywhere near there, given the amount of rain that has fallen in the area in the last 24 hours.
