Wet, Wet, Wet

The rain arrived about 5.30 a.m. on Thursday and didn't stop for 24 hours. My weather station recorded a total of 52.8m mm of rain, a bit over 2 inches.

Friday morning
 Rainfall Nov 8 2019
As far as I can gather the average for the whole month of November here is about 70mm. It was not the sort of day I would choose to travel to town voluntarily but I had an optician appointment. In fact I had two appoints booked for yesterday.  The other being at the local medical practice.

As always I videoed my car journeys. This is a few clips from the visit to Louth.
It is by way of an experiment. I used a Mac app called VideoSpeak to add some comments.
Not my voice but one chosen from dozens available in the app.

In the app you play the video, stop it where you want a comment and type it in.
Then choose a voice which will speak the typed words.

Music soundtrack is Riders of Rhythm Force. A track given away many years ago on a PC Home magazine cover CD.


  1. Excellent John. Not sure I would have picked the Aussie but it is effective.

    1. Adrian: Thanks. Lots of different voices but most are not really clear enough. The best one is the female one I use at the end.

  2. Wow! What an interesting video! I would not have been able to drive through those large puddles. Several years back I actually totaled my minivan because I stalled in a puddle that turned out to be deeper than I thought! Water got up into the engine and the vehicle could not be repaired. So since then, I find it very scary to drive into a puddle that might be too deep! You were brave to keep on in the poor weather! Also, interesting to see the driving perspective when driving on the left! Thanks for sharing this!

    1. Ellen: Thanks for the comment. Driving through water is not something I like doing. Fortunately I've driven that road for decades and have a good idea how deep the water might be.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
