I have just returned from two weeks in Cyprus, in those two weeks we had no rain, in fact, they are not expecting to have any rain now until late October. When we left they were giving the swimming pool its daily refresh and the man down the road was cleaning his car with a pressure hose. When we left Gatwick two weeks ago it was raining, when we arrived back it pouring down.
Perhaps the managers of the english water companies should take a holiday in Cyprus!!!!
