Well the weather in Glasgow has finally broken. Not the heatwave, it’s still hot, but instead of clear blue skies and scorching sun, we have torrential rain.
Other parts of the country have thunder and lightning, which should clear the air and mean it’s less muggy. No thunderstorms here at present, just rain. Lots and lots of rain.
This is going to make cycling home tonight……interesting. It’s not like I didn’t know this was coming, it’s more like I thought “will it rain before I get to work? No. That’s fine then”, and just ignored the fact it was going to rain.
To be honest, I don’t mind cycling in the rain. It’s quite nice. When I ran regularly, running in the rain was one of those pleasures that, if you’ve never done it, you just won’t understand. Cycling in the rain is a bit like that.
It’s stopped raining. At it’s height, it sounded like machine gun fire, as it hit off the glass roof of the building I ate lunch in.
I’m under no illusions that I’ll get home dry. The clouds are dark and foreboding, and they’re threatening a deluge rather than a light summer shower. This is the payback for the heatwave and glorious sunshine we’ve enjoyed for the last two (almost three) weeks. Yin and yang. All things in balance.
