DELAYED DUE TO THIS RAIN CLOUD

Rain Rain go away,
So the bikes have no delay,
Photographer me has her bills to pay





How thunderous am I feeling round about now. You saw my image from yesterday. Click here to see. Perfect sky. Not an cloud or any looming on the horizon. Got up today.. and so had the rain. Talk about a washout. Cancelled. This means now the whole week has to be rescheduled. This also means I now have to shuffle all my commitments around. You can see for yourselves that cloud hanging over us was swollen with water and within minutes of the image a downpour ensued. A downpour that lasted until late afternoon.

On the positive side the other half and I had a cracking slap up breakfast(me full veggie him full everything) at the Court Cafe along the high street. You know me by now. If it's bad I'll tell you so this will make a pleasant change. If you find yourself in Ramsey - go there. Good prices, good grub, friendly staff and no they haven't a clue who I am so this endorsement maybe a shock. Hell, you can even get a packed lunch for £5. You will find me there a lot this week stocking up on the caffeine in between races.


Well I'm gutted not to be showing you any racing today. Hopefully by the time everyone gets here she will have brought the sunshine on the ferry from Heysham and I can get to work on the motorbike photos.





Annoyed photographer on the loose will be cheerier when the sun has got his hat on.

Did you back the winner at the Derby today? I didn't :(
Stupid old rain cloud but great photo!

Kaye said...

We are not coming until Sunday night so I can't say I am sorry the racing has been delayed. You have amazing photos.

tfangel said...

Raining here a world away too, but no complaints here as we still need more with the drought we are under. :)

Babooshka said...

Lynn- The Derby. I'm so one one note with the TT I completely forgot any other sport event.

Kaye- True you'll get to see the delayed races. Every cloud soes have a silver lining then.

Tfangel- True again rain for some is a welcome lifeline.

Night all. Long day ahead with what we call Mad Sunday. Hope to show you tomorrow.

I hope you now have sunshine and races. It's too bad that the rain canceled everything today, but you did get a great picture of the sky.

Tash said...

OH NO! Unbelievable! I saw that you were worried about this from your Facebk entry. Picturesque cloud none-the-less.

Babooshka:THe Sky Is Great...Wondeful Photograph..

Gaelyn said...

That little cloud washed out the race? May the sun shine on you tomorrow.

gogouci said...

Oooh...looks like angry skies in your neck of the woods.

Snapshutter said...

In our area right now the mantra is rain rain rain. We're in a drought situation and welcome any rain we can get, like today.

Michele said...

It could be worse... how about some snow and rain such as here? Does that make you feel any better? =)

Ulrica said...

I like the clouds even if they whispering about rain...

Kitty said...

It was just trying to watch the race as well - how was it know it wasn't welcome?

Dina ... UK said...

Cotton wool comes to mind...lovely and fluffy.
Hubbys been watching the TT 9pm
ITV4, I have no chance with big brother. LOL
Saturday on our way home from Wales, 164 miles for 130 we had the wipers on constantly....:-(

Vita Stunder said...

I really like those clouds even if they whisper about rain.

Have a great sunday!

I know the feeling. All week some the best weather in years and now its the weekend and over 30mm of rain on the east coast of Ireland and that would include Isle of Man. Looks good for Sunday.
Good Luck and hope to see some wonderful images of men in leathers on bikes!

Carver said...

I'm sorry about the rain delay but that makes for a beautiful monochrome shot. Mine is also featuring rain.

James said...

It rained most of last week here, but you really captured the clouds well. Very nice photo.

mannanan said...

Bet the race organisers are kicking themselves not racing today. Will be on the look out for you. Thanks for your very, very kind comments. Keep up the brill work.....

Aileni said...

Typical Island/TT weather. They have even raced with snow on the Mountain.

RuneE said...

Just keep the rain - we can do without it for a while :-)

John said...

Good luck with the weather!

Gail's Man said...

Load of rain here too. Stopped me going to a couple of events. So another 'old' photo going up today. don't know what yet though.

2sweetnsaxy said...

Sorry about the race but it's a nice cloud shot. :-) We've been really cloudy too but not much rain from all those clouds.

Hege said...

The clouds look more beatiful than the rain feels. ;)
And we have had enough rain for a while now...

Anne said...

The clowds have theyr mission too :-)) And sometimes they can be very very beautiful at a picture, like this one :-))

Nice week.

Buenos Aires Photoblog said...

I keep my fingers crossed that the rain will stop. At least it gave you the opportunity for this nice cloudy shot.

Babooshka said...

Mannanan - I just checked. You snapped the very place I was, but a different time.

Liz said...

I hope that cloud has already disappeared!

Dagrun said...

Very nice cloud, I hope the rain has stopped though.

lisasarsfield said...

Stink one alright! Your sky yesterday was a stunner! I hope you will still get the shots your after (just not as soon as you hoped!)
Thanks for your visit! I am glad to be back after a enforced break away!

Frank said...

It's always heartwarming to read about others around the world who also mainline caffeine. Why is it rain seems to be a very popular and frequent blog subject of late. (Miami was praticaly washed away yesterday by 5 inches or so of rain and it flooded stores and streets.)

marley said...

At least you had a good nosh up! I saw some of the TT on ITV 4, didn't spot you though!

Birdman said...

Love that cloud bank above the hills. It grabs the eye...even if it brings the rain.

bettyl said...

Great photo, as always!

Tyra in Vaxholm said...

OH... it looks WET WET WET

Great shot

Robin said...

What rotten luck! I hope you're back on track soon without any massive scheduling hassles.

The breakfast sounds great though - much better than the cheerios I had this morning.

Daryl said...

love those clouds hanging over the mountains .. we had miserable rain all last week and more due this week .. FEH

Greyscale Territory said...

Your rain cloud may have stalled the event but you have a magically moody, dramatic photo!

Mojo said...

Clever verse and a marvelous mono! Hope it didn't stick around too long.
