Wrong kind of rain

Only an hour and a half to get home

I was expecting far worse - even though it wasn't raining in Old Street although the sky was very very grey and a few of us had seen lightening, there were already reports that the transport system was screwed because quite a bit of London had flooding.

Onto the Tube's website I saw that the District Line was already suspended between Turnham Green and Richmond, although I wouldn't have needed to have been Mystic Meg to have guessed that in advance. You only need a slight bit of drizzle for the District Line between Turnham Green and Richmond to be suspended. So, it was bus and British Snail home. Waterloo was completely choc-a-bloc and the Underground was closed at Waterloo too, but by some stroke of luck I got a reasonably fast train out.

Coming back from my meeting at Tooting Broadway though I saw an reasonably appropriate poster for tonight's wet weather. If there were a few giant sized sink unblockers perhaps that might ease the flooding.

I wonder if this will cause a
diplomatic incident between plumbers and London Transport though?
