raining, and we are in drought. I understand why people would be annoyed by a hosepipe ban when the water is constantly falling from the sky. But, I don't really want to talk about the weather so don't strike up the
conversation with me.
It's April and there will be showers, that's why they are so named. After
a dry two years, with below-average rainfall for 80% of the time a lot of the country is in drought.
I'm never quite sure why a hosepipe ban causes so much uproar. I don't own a hosepipe and I don't see a need for one in the future. They make pretty
lousy presents for any occasion and just get in the way in the shed. Yes I have a shed. In fact I have 2 sheds. I have never been in either of them.
