Its dropping.

After a wander around the area to see what’s happening and get off the boat for a while I met Ray the lock keeper and he said that the river had dropped an inch over the last hour or so. Hopefully without any more heavy rainfall things should start to improve.
There seems to be a lot of conflicting information being bantered around at present regarding water levels, drinking water, and possible power cuts. The radio station is saying that if the information is not from an original and legitimate source ignore it, i.e. power companies, councils or Environmental Agency.
Now on a lighter note I would love a quid for every time the bow of our boat has been photographed by amateurs’ and professionals alike with the bow wave that is being created by the strong flowing river.
