Roman roads, together with Roman aqueducts and the vast standing Roman army, constituted the three most impressive features of the Roman Empire. In Britain, as in their other provinces, the Romans constructed a comprehensive network of paved trunk roads (i.e. surfaced highways) during their nearly four centuries of occupation (43 - 410 AD).
Rather than being grumpy at the weather- why don't we take a second to admire it? And think that while we may not like it, there are many creatures who do. Many plants that enjoy the rain or trees that yearn for heat to stop the rot that creeps up their trunk... Just think about it.
