I was marshalling at the fireworks in town tonight. We turned up for the 6pm briefing which was exactly the same as last years, then were assigned to our areas. Unfortunatley I got stuck with Bath FM again which drove me mad last year, so I managed to get moved to the area in front of the crowd. At 7:30 the fireworks started, and so did the rain. 20 minutes later, both had finished again. After pasty, chips, and a few pints of Bass I started walking home, only for it to start pouring with rain meaning I got absolutely soaked. I think my clothes will take a week to dry out again.
Just to taunt myself, I watched the 6:30 weather forecast when I got home which promised a clear and dry evening. Lying bastards.
I’m meant to be going to the fireworks again tomorrow, but the weather looks to be even worse that today, so I think I’ll stay home.
