We decided to put off our boating friend as the weather today has been horrendous.
Serious rain and heavy winds, or even serious winds and heavy rain, have been pelting us since the early hours, and although it is a relatively short distance from her basin to ours, she would have got SOAKED, twice.
Being in her mid seventies, this would definitely not have been a good idea, so we gave her a call first thing this morning. She was perfectly agreeable, and happy to postpone her curry evening until Friday.
In the meantime, we are experiencing a sense of deja vu as the boats on the river rise steadily, the gantries stretch to horizontal and the banks between us begin to disappear.
The water level has risen 2.1 metres in 12 hours, and is still rising.
Good job we had a full maintenance day today………… emptied loo, topped up water and fuel, plenty of grub, milk, teabags and coffee, not to mention of course our wellies and fluorescent yellow suits!
BRING IT ON!
