Jeeeez, how bad is this rain?
I think even if it stops now, which it gives no indication of doing as it's hammering down right now, the rivers round my neck of the woods would take a couple of weeks before they dropped off to anyting like a trottable level. I mean the ground is totally saturated and once the main flush has dropped off the amount of water left to seep out of the ground will still keep them running higher than the norm.
Only plus side to the weather at the moment is the temperatures haven't dropped right off.
I'm in the northwest, hows the weather at your stomping ground?

I'm on the other side of the Pennines, as you know Ian, and it's the same over here. Every river has possible flood warnings on it, and the rain is showing no let-up. We keep getting a torrential downpour, followed by a period of medium/heavy showers, then back to the downpour again.
I need to get out and cut the grass, but no chance. I should have cut it before we went away, but got side-tracked, and haven't had a chance to cut it since we got back, I might need a scythe to get through it at this rate.

Looked at the river on the way back, it's 18" up and in flood. Local reservoir Dam Flask full and over the overflow. Shame it's so bad as it fishes so well for Pike when it's full. Trouble is my old bones can't take the damp for long anymore.

However with all the rain that we are told is coming it may be in flood quite soon; but hey a good flush through might do it good as long as it doesn’t last too long.

If you have any spare?

Everything is saturated, the local rivers are still rising and there's another 4cm of rain forecast tomorrow.
Well at least it will get rid of that streamer weed that people have been moaning about.
