  • How to stop the rain???

    Right we need a bright spark to come up with a solution to this never ending cycle of rain, it's been so bad that it's even been affecting the board members today, so suggestions please.....

    could we all do a reverse Indian rain dance ???

    Cheers

    Simple one, Peter

    Massive blowups of Sunny scenes, stuck to all the windows, and everyone stays inside

      If he was still alive we could appoint Denns Howell as Minister for Floods.
      As that is no longer possible I suggest we all emigrate to the Sahara.

        If we all fart together we could blow the jet stream off course and send the rain to Turkey, Africa, California or Australia where they are desperate for rain.

        Unfortunately our collective CO2 and methane emissions would only contribute to further global warming.

          plant water loving plants, and build a few reservoirs that'll make it stop

            When you come up with a way of stopping the rain let me know and I'll see if it will stop the snow around here.
            It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.

              Put up an umbrella and stay dry?

                I'm not sure about your smelly method, but it would be nice to have some, lets make it all of your rain here & spread it over Australia & I think that could work out pretty good!

                  Get E-1,E-3,E-5, E-m5 and E-m1 and those weatherseal lenses, go out there and shoot some nice rain soaked pictures.

                    Although this is grim, I'd rather endure this than the snow we had last year. Roll on the "summer".

                      Hi there everyone!

                      I think that the answer is obvious - invest heavily in rainwater harvesting systems for your houses so you can reduce your water bill - guaranteed instant drought!

                      Cheers,

                      Ralph.

                        For some reason, recently several of my retired friends have upped stumps and moved to places like Tenerife and Cyprus.

                          Buy a raincoat and wellies. The more expensive the better. That will stop the rain as surely as buying sunglasses in summer sends the sun scuttering behind the clouds.

                            I can't complain I've got blue sky and a clear view of the alps from my office right now. Ner-ner!

                              We decide on a time and date and at that time we all go outside, look up, and shout

                              GO AWAY NASTY RAIN!

                              Sure to work IMHO.
