Today is grey and yes, it is rather gloomy. Also, it is raining. But I don’t know weather I would necessarily classify it as rain. It’s not like drizzle either. It’s like a spray, the kind you get in Asia outside the shops to try to cool the customers down as they walk about.
And in places like Singapore and Malaysia and Australia, when it rains, it rains. There’s no two ways about it. It’s not “deciding” whether to rain or not.
Over here in London, I think it’s still deciding and so in the meantime it’s …. spraying vapours (can’t think of a better way to describe it). It’s what I shall call, inconvenient rain. There’s no point to opening the umbrella because it just “vapours” onto the brolly. Or, if you don’t open it, you just become damp. So I walk around getting damp with a brolly in my arm. Like I said, … inconvenient.
