It’s Raining Again

Kilchattan Bay looking over to Cumbrae, BBC weather forecast: Heavy Rain Shower

Contrary to the spouse’s predictions of painful online cold-turkey for me, it was actually he who was clamouring for an internet connection a mere six hours after leaving the mainland for the Isle of Bute. Fortunately, the local hotel has wi-fi, so I made the brave sacrifice of having a glass of wine in the bar, as the spouse fought doggedly with the trackpad on the laptop. I had forbidden him to be seen using the computer mouse in a public place, but it was a decision I soon came to regret when he was still hopelessly stabbing away with his finger and swearing, by the time I had finished my first packet of cheese and onion crisps.

Once he was done and his blood pressure had returned to normal, we sneaked a quick look at the BBC five day weather forecast. It wasn’t good. In the previous six hours, the one remaining sunny intervals symbol had disappeared from the chart, along with all hope of sitting outside at any point. The daily predictions now ranged from heavy rain to light rain shower, so my mental image of glorious sunshine on the beach was swiftly replaced by visions of wandering, mid frequency-less, in the wind and rain saying “Eh?” a lot. This proved to be rather accurate.

Still, even when it’s wet and miserable, the view of the approaching rain from the sofa more than makes up for it.

    All this shall be yours in a couple of weeks, hopefully minus the rain. The spouse was behind the camera, all of my photies are uniformly rubbish…
