    14th century legend that has never actually happened yet.

    It's been sporadically raining here most of the day.
    I shot a vein in my neck and coughed up a Quaalude.

    Despite warnings for this morning it has stayed dry on the Lincolnshire coast.

    The chances of forty dry days given the past few so-called "summers" here anyway are slim, methinks.
    The powers-that-be seem to like reminding British holidaymakers that school holidays and dry weather in UK resorts never shall meet.
    Not for more than a few days at a time, any way.
