We missed it.

Still moored at Darlington Wharf.
442 locks, 565½ miles, 17 Tunnels, 18 swing bridges and 9 lift bridges since Nov 2006

Well the weather forecast for this morning was right, heavy rain which started very early this morning. By lunch time it had died away to occasional showers. This evening there is no rain but strong winds but the barometer is rising so we will resume our journey tomorrow morning if alls well.
After watching the TV news tonight and seeing all the flooding which is not that far from where we are, we consider ourselves very lucky to have missed the eye of the storm. We can only commiserate with the people who have been forced out of their homes by flooding.
Flood warnings are coming in thick and fast from Waterscape.com and luckily none of them affect us so far.
