The weathermen in this country have made some shocking forcasts in the past though, so its by no means a given that we'll get any play at all today. Even if they get under way eventually, that wind is beastly. I sure wouldn't want to play in those conditions.
It's frustrating because here, just about 6/7 miles east we haven't really had that much rain and its bone dry now, although the wind is awful.
Still I've been here long enough to expect this, and I am enjoying these classic matches the BBC are showing, quite a bit.
