Sunshine and cloud 18.3c at the moment slight breeze but it did rain through the night not very heavy  though but the ground is wet enough so desperately need the sun to dry it out.

Rain, too bad about that flooding--looks extreme! How fast does it disappear?[when it stops raining, that is]

Hi Inkadog,  it drains away quite quickly when it stops raining but the ground stay soft for weeks unless we get some sunshine which there is a decided lack of at the moment.


Sunshine and showers today but thankfully the Water Board have been and cleared a blockage, it seems that 3 drains were blocked that's why mine wouldn't empty,  they water blasted it and 2 tennis balls an iron bar and big chunks of cardboard later it's free,  the chap said judging by the colour of the muck that came out of the drain it had been blocked for some considerable time,  so I know I shouldn't wish for more heavy rain but I just want to see it all disappear down the drain.

That was quick,  the council were here 2.15 but cant clear it so it's still full,  have rung the Water Board and they are going to send someone to have a look,  don't think they will be quick as the council but as long as it gets sorted I'm not bothered

@wintersong, I have no apples forming here either. I thought it was probably because the blossom got blown off so quickly?

I think you could be right there Rob as I have no Pears or Plums as they were blown to bits early in the year

Sunshine and torrential showers,  had to ring the council to come and clear the drain as it's still full and now due to the fact that it's still raining it's overflowing again,  do hope they come soon,  because I'm in  a dip all the surface water heads to my drain and misses the ones on either side, they are in fact almost useless and there's not much can be done about it,  stupid road infrastructure I think didn't think about the consequence's when building !
