More choices announced for BBC Olympic viewers
In England we know we're in the middle of a drought, while to the world's journalists it confirmed it always rains in London.
Here at the BBC we're marking the day with our special preview programme tonight but also with more announcements about ways you'll be able to view our content during Games time.
This morning we reported that Virgin Media has become the latest platform to sign up for the 24 BBC Olympic channels - so they'll be available to cable viewers in HD or SD and via the BBC Red Button or channel numbers in the EPG (Electronic Programme Guide).
This is in line with the agreements with Sky and Freesat and the 24 streams will also be available on the BBC Sport and 2012 websites.
Now we can also tell you about some good news for Freeview HD viewers.
Thanks to some newly-released digital space, the BBC will be broadcasting an additional high definition service on the Freeview HD platform over the Games period.
This will be a simulcast of the BBC's main Red Button service on Freeview, also available on channel 301, delivered in glorious HD.

Capacity limitations mean we would be unable to deliver 24 streams to Freeview audiences through their TVs, but this extra service will bring the number of high definition services available on Freeview HD over the Olympic Games period to three.
It's worth noting that the Freeview red button service will be picking the best of the action from the sports not being covered on BBC One and BBC Three, so we'll deliver more top-quality Olympic action from a range of venues in subscription-free HD.
BBC One HD and BBC HD can be found at Freeview HD EPG positions 50 and 54 respectively.
For ease of navigation, Freeview HD viewers will be able to access the additional temporary high definition service directly via the red button from these channels and it will also be listed on the Freeview HD EPG at position 304 with the other BBC Red Button services on Freeview (301 and 302).
That means viewers with PVRs (Personal Video Recorders) will be able to record even more BBC Olympics coverage in high definition.
Juggling these multiple platforms is pretty complex, as you'll have spotted by now.
But the pledge on 100 Days To Go is simple: more choice on more platforms. This includes more HD than ever before, including the first Olympics in HD on Freeview, and big live moments plus daily highlights in 3D.
