Tuesday 23 July 2013


After the longest sunny period for 7 years or so, now we have the month's rainfall in a day.

Just east of The Norfolk Arms
As I left home it was dry but there had been showers and thunder for most of the day. I didn't want to do too much as the environment was incredibly hot and humid. That made the ascent through Limb Valley harder work than it usually is. With the rumbles gradually sounding to be nearby, and that cooling of the air which is so characteristic of an imminent rainstorm, I decided to head back home and was caught in a heavy downpour just after making that correct decision. 

Luckily the shower slowed as quickly as it had arrived and it was only damp for the next few km. Despite being soaked I was plenty warm enough which is an indication of the temperature.
