Hose pipe ban

We’re heading for a drought in the south-east, apparently. I am always at a loss to understand why such a wet country should be so dry. In my experience (and Berta agrees), it always rains every day at precisely 3.30pm when you collect your children from school. You can spend a whole day delighting in clear skies and sunshine only to be rewarded by a sudden deluge. Perhaps the government should insist that parents doing the school pick-up should arm themselves with several empty buckets. You could probably collect enough in that miserable half hour to water the average parched garden.
