    I was hiding in Charing Cross underground station around the moment this photo was taken… Luckily it eased off and I made it to the theatre without a soaking!

    Spectacular photo! Not much fun on a bike last night though the rain eased quickly and I made it home without getting too wet.

    I was glad I wore plastic shoes!
