Very seldom did we have that kind of rain in Salton City. When that happened, Frank and I used to sit on the porch and enjoy the falling rain. That was entertainement! In other places, I just hate rain!
Looks a lot like north west England at the moment.
Proper rain is definitely worth sitting on the veranda and watching.
Yes, no exaggeration. The rainfall in parts of England has been of a tropical intensity.
