Rain on the train

I was on the tube the other day and it started raining. Over the tannoy, the driver made an announcement using a classic bit of British understatement.

"Ladies and gentlemen" he began, "do be careful when exiting the train as it is raining outside and there's a bit of a breeze blowing"

When the tube stopped at West Acton station, the doors opened and there was almost a hurricane, which blew so hard that it soaked most of our legs all the way to the middle of the carriage!

A light breeze indeed!
