A few weeks ago I wrote about easing into summer style; well, I may have been a tad premature. Last night we woke to thunder storms and a power cut. Today our local station was flooded, trains were cancelled and traffic lights down. I don’t want to get all end-of-worldy on you, but what the hell is going on?!
As I tottered down to the polling station, clearly contemplating the huge impact today’s vote will have on our country, I got caught in yet another downpour. This time, unlike many freak weather incidents before, I was prepared (practicalities aren’t my strong point): me in my ASOS rain mac and miss B under her monkey umbrella.
With my vote now simmering in the ballot box, I reckon I could do my next great service to the country. Oh yes, you will thank me.
Rain coats. Folks, we are going to need ’em. And, as previously stated, I am no authority on the ‘proper’ stuff (aka the clobber Bear Grylls would wear in a monsoon), but I can tell you where to find a pretty coat that just happens to be waterproof. Job Done. Here are my picks to get you through our British, um… summer???
3 rain coats you won’t regret buying (because you might get wet if you don’t)
