Chris: This is what we all have to do in wind & rain Peter

What a fine word that is, Chris!
Chris: It might be one with whom nothing else rhymes..

I hope you were able to get shelter under a big branch... That is Rain with a capital R.....
Love the silhouette of the man walking by.
Chris: This is a moment of his life frozen in time Astrid, one he might want to forget..
To be honest (and Astrid is my witness), I am quite partial to Blustery, Chris. smile
Chris: Very interesting Ginnie, remind me to ask you why when we meet

It looks like April, April weather! But we are not in Droitwich? I like this onomatopoetic word, too.
Chris: This is Bristol Philine, on a not very nice January day

I think you may have been cosy inside somewhere, Chris
Chris: Quite right Lisl: I think this was taken from within the cozy confines of the Arnolfini

Excellent Tiff, that passer-by just adds so much to this, especially in darkness.
Chris: I rather liked this Chad because it really is simply a moment in time, the sort we all have and don't remember, nor do we want to..

Your very informative text sums this up nicely; I'm surprised that the chao isn't bent double into such appalling weather, Apart from the dampness, it's bit like this in Derbyshire; not what I was expecting at all. and not that conducive to photography.
Chris: Well if you will go farther north than Worcestershire what on earth do you expect?
I know today is Windsday
and this is how I know
it's always on a Windsday
that the winds begin to blow
Chris: I wonder if Philine knows the word doggerel?

If not she'll certainly know rubbish, and all its charming connotations..

A bit like today then - a nasty North Easterly chilling my bones. You capture the feeling of outside perfectly for a man sat inside ;o)
Chris: It was the only way I could get the shot Mike - honest!

Excellent and you are sitting there behind glass, nursing a hot chocolate.
Chris: Quite so Louis..
I would prefer your blustery to our blustery. Our blustery is so bad today that all schools are closed. Love the shot with the blurry walker by the way.
Chris: Thank you Mary: I think I prefer our blustery too

I like Bill's poem - and the term 'doggerel' was a few days ago explained in a newsletter I'm used to receive daily: http://wordsmith.org/words/doggerel.html
Chris: Keep learning Philine. I'm sure those of us on the blog who know you can continue to feed you with fresh morsels from our native tongue
Blustery and wet plays havoc with your mascara but it wouldn't effect him
Chris: I'm sure mascara and this sort of weather do not mix Janet

Chris: Thank you Anne: rainy, windy, blustery Bristol weather

I really enjoy rainy and stormy photos, and this is just beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing, and warm greetings from Montreal, Canada. smile
Chris: Thank you kindly Linda: greetings too, from Bath in the UK
We always think the wind is one of the most irritating of weather phenomenons, you just can't get away from it!
Chris: Only by going indoors Brian

Can't beat walking in the rain
Chris: It makes a man of you!
Dark and blustery!
Chris: Winter Tom, note I was indoors to take this
