Do you like the rain? I can't remember the name of it, but there's a science-fiction short story or novella by Robert Heinlein (I think), where these settlers on a jungle planet are slowly driven insane by the incessant and heavy rain. That story may as well be about the UK at the moment. We've had months of rainfall in days, non-stop rain for months, 60-year floods... all since April. I've never seen a summer like it... truly extraordinary. ...and it's driving me absolutely mental. People's houses in the country are getting looted, have no drinking water, their possessions are ruined, the shops are holding huge sales of summer clothing, there are warehouses of unsold BBQ equipment stockpiled all over the country... and my clothes are taking ages to dry. I'm abso-bloody-lutely fecking fed up to the back teeth.
