After the stunning estuary wilds sunshine of Tuesday, today was all about staying indoors and avoiding the grim drizzle.
Working from home is made for days such as Wet Wednesday.
I tried to find some musical inspiration to brighten up the hours.
I was probably looking in the wrong place with Dave Rawlings' subdued Nashville Obsolete.
Morgan Heritage meanwhile livened things up with @RobertElms.
Work carried me through until early evening, and then I did a runner to Colchester for the CBC Full Council meeting.
I knew from the agenda that this would be a biggie.
But boy - did it drag...
It wasn't helped by the bloody temperature up in the public gallery. I just about rode it out, but my MacBook didn't.
The fan kicked into hyperdrive, draining down the battery and leaving me more or less b0rked.
I had the iPhone as a back up, but it wasn't ideal.
I hate leaving meetings early, but I wasn't going to hang around for the silly last train.
I cut my losses just after 10pm.
Later I read on Twitter that a pretty key Motion had been defeated.
I was too bloody tired to blog anything back at base.
I'll give it a crack first thing in the morning.
