In reply to M1EYP:
You may have seen my alert- I booked a half day’s annual leave for yesterday (I work evenings) so that I could activate Rombalds Moor for the Fun evening and 70cms contest. I noticed that it had been raining heavily since the early hours yesterday, so I looked at the BBC weather forecast and it said that the day’s weather was going to be predominately heavy rain. I decided that I’d cancel my leave and stay at work!
Looking out of the window at work at about 6pm I thought I’d made a mistake as the sun was shining - but when I next looked out of the window at 8.15pm (windows are few and far between at work!) it was throwing it down! I made the right decision after all!
Rombald’s moor always seems to be boggy, so I guess it would have been pretty bad yesterday. In a way it’s ironic that I didn’t get out yesterday as I bought a shiny new Gore Tex Pro Shell jacket at the weekend and I want to try it out!
Lets hope the weather gets better, and hopefully the remaining fun nights may be better supported.
