100 million gallons of water. Price............£0.01p per 100 million gallons with option to buy more at a later date. When...........Now. Where..........Most areas of the UK. Buyer collects.
I sure could use it and could make a fortune selling it around here, but am interested only if you would ship it.
I have just poured your water into the sea, all you need to do now is collect it your end. P.S don't forget to send me the penny :o)
Ricky, you are magic! Right now we are in the midst of a very loud thunderstorm and getting what I think is a significant amount of rain. Just tell me where to send the penny!
Why not set up a water selling 'Nigerian scam' to get rid of your excess water. I can almost see the pleading e mails - My Dearest, My late husband who was the minister for water in our country has died leaving me as the sole owner of enough water to cover all of Africa. It would not be in the best interests if other countries were no longer in drought and so I beg you my dearest to provide me with your banking details including passwords . . .
It's sad, really.... first there's a drought and subsequent hosepipe ban... now there's floods... and soon, there's be another hosepipe ban. When will the English learn how to store water? And to answer your question: we could use some water, please. Had no rain here at all this year!
Now that Rex and Jess have made bids on their water, can I recommend we take first from the streets of Hebden Bridge - those poor people, first their were flooded because the river broke its banks, next they were flooded because it came torrenting down from the hills - you simply can't win! Actually, Ricky, if the weather forecasters have it right, you should be able to chill some of that water overnight tonight - maybe you can figure how to make it go the distance and freeze! ;-)
Ah Ricky, how lovely that your post has brought a smile to my face this morning. :-) This bl**dy weather is seriously, seriously getting me down. :-( Even by Ireland's standards, this is just TOO much. All of May, June and so far into July, we have had incessant rain, and no end in sight. I tend to get the miseries in the deep winter months with the dark afternoons and the (to be expeced) rotten weather, but ALL through our supposed "summer" too!!! I am driving my husband crazy with my tutting and sighing and have developed a touch of cabin fever, having been confined to barracks over the weekend. I have spent my money going away to sunnier places in February, May and this coming September. I booked September as an insurance against a bad summer here...hah! I made the right choice there then. :-) Now, I think I will just go and !stroke" my summer holiday wardrobe of bikinis and white trousers and take the caps off of the suncream bottles and inhale deeply...
I'm with you Poppy Poodles. My potatoes are waterlogged, my outside salad tub has drowned (since drained it and moved it inside along with all other tub grown veggies) all the snails and slugs have mown down my coriander sowings (why can't they stick to grass??). Talking about the grass, I now need a goat as it has been too wet to do the mowing. One of our esteemed politicians (who shall remain nameless) decided that after independence, we would be able to sell water to drought stricken England and make a fortune.... This summer has knocked that idea firmly on the head. Molly is most reluctant to get her ears and paws wet to go into the garden for the necessaries, so I am losing weight by lugging a portly bichon into the garden and plonking her down, on a lead until she has finished. She gets dried off of course when she gets indoors, but the silly little freezy beetch would rather hold it all day long than brave the rain. I've even put a raincoat on her to encourage her. Mickie couldn't care less and takes off like a small Ferrari and comes back soaked to the skin. A true Welsh Poodle, born into rain.
A young friend from BC who is in the UK for a year says it's the worst summer so far since you folks started keeping track. Let's hope it clears for the Olympics.
See, now that's the problem. Around here we know the Portland Rose Festival is over because it suddenly stops raining a day after the parade is over. We know the last weekend of July will always be scorching hot because that is the weekend they do the big steam power demonstration in Brooks. What you need to do is figure out how to get the Olympics people to reschedule to a month later, when you could really use the rain.
I know I may earn myself some boo-ing from a few of you right now... but I just have to say: Brits are obsessed with the weather and seem to let it get you down far too easily. (it's endearing... really) You know, other countries also have a lot of rain or cool summers, etc. but nobody seems to whinge so incessantly about the weather like the Brits do. Especially the English (I have many English friends and they do admit to this)... I know that this year is especially bad with the rains and the flooding (so please, this is an exceptional case and complaining is warranted) but with regards to the complaints about the "normal, very short British summer"... what exactly do you expect? You're an island (= temperamental weather) located smack-bang between the NORTH Atlantic and the NORTH Sea... you can't expect to have summers like the south of France! Rant over :-) I hope the skies clear-up for you guys soon. And what I said was said with a smile and a chuckle... not meant in a nasty way at all.
Jess, it's acknowledged as a national pastime - and we a giving nation so we like to share! ;-)
Like buggery, I want paying NOW :o) Just in case you have not seen it before, here is my weather forcast I usually give out regarding this wonderful p!ss wet country we live in. Jess, we didn't earn the name "winjing Poms" for nowt, it was hard earned and we are bloody well proud of it :o) January/February/March/April/May/June July/August/September/October/November/December. SUN. Possible but not likely. HUMIDITY. Usually follows the sun, and then:- ELECTRICAL STORMS. Followed by:- RAIN. We excel in rain. PRECIPITATION. NO! it’s called bloody RAIN. OVERCAST. Most defiantly. COLD. O yes. FROST. Comes just when you put in your bedding plants and kills them all off. SNOW. You never know. BLIZZARDS. Only when it snows. SLEET. Rain with icy bits in it. HAILSTONES. Anytime, anywhere. FOG. Not always on the Tyne. GALES. Strike just after the weather man says there is nothing to worry about. FLOODING. Only if you are daft enough to live near a river. RAINING CATS AND DOGS. No but we have had fish and frogs. SPRING. Anytime between January and December, a good indication is when all the housewives do their “spring clean” SUMMER. Anytime between January and December. Please send us a postcard when you think this will happen we have not a clue. AUTUMN. Anytime between January and December. All the leaves have left the trees, sorry, I forgot, the acid rain did all that. WINTER. Anytime between January and December. I think you are getting the idea.
Ricky, you're priceless.
Here in the Willamette Valley of Oregon we had a remarkable thing happen this year. Summer happened on a weekend. Usually, it happens on one of the days during the week, and is one of the best half-hours of the year.

He knows I am only kidding! Oh - I have lots of water too - I bet mine is cheaper than his! Out of interest , my wife lost a 3-month-old car in the floods in Shipston-on-Stour a few years back.
