Oh heck. Bad luck!

Hope it improves soon. Nothing more frustrating that staring at bad weather.

Oh dear Roy, sorry to hear about this but it is still a holiday for John . Thanks very much for the update.

Good luck with the weather. Hope it improves. Had some serious thunderstorms here the last few nights, but at least they’ve mostly had the decency to hold off til it got dark. The one overhead a couple of nights back sent the little dogs hiding in the darkest corners, and the associated downpour completely overwhelmed the gutters. Messing about with towels and such trying to keep the place dry at midnight isn’t my idea of a holiday, but there you go. Played havoc with any chasing plans, too…
