The forecast for today looked pretty dire. A severe weather warning with possible thunder, lightning and hail. Other than the persistent rain on day 3 we have been lucky.
We had an hour or so of rain just before the Avon bridge yesterday. Today we seemed to be following behind some heavy showers - finding wet roads - but we didn't get rained on until we were about 10 miles from Ironbridge - and that only lasted about 15 minutes. The rain set in for a while about 10 minutes after we arrived - but guess what - we didn't care :-).
