STUPID STUPID STUPID WEATHER.

I'd planed to paint my calipers this weekend, but first i need to valet my car, get rid of all the broken glass and that.
I wake up this morning and it's cracking flags, if only a little windy.
I get the car on the drive, get the extension cable, plug in the vac, and it's raining.
so i wait inside, for the rain to stop, and it's sunny as anything again.
I hop outside, start vaccuming, lasts maybe 10minutes, and it's raining again. so i have to put everything into the garage, and wait it out, so 10 mins away and it's dry, i hop back outside and start vacing again, and lo and behold, it starts to rain.

On and of it's continued like this for the past hour. :bang:

Yup, it's the same here :( I was wanting to prep the car for Donny but it keeps raining and never stops for long enough for me to risk going and washing and waxing and valeting the thing :bang:

It was quite nice this morning so I went and bought some hosepipe attachments with the intention of washing my car this afternoon (before I spotted the rust :bang:) and now it's snowing rather heavily. Looks like more housework and sitting on here then ;)
