Weather - again!

You all know the standard pictograms for weather forecast reporting...

...well I think they ought to be honest, and adopt a new one...

Yesterday, the forecast for today said that the weather would be good enough for us to do our three-hour cruise to test the engine. This morning it said otherwise, and we had torrential rain and strong winds. We have not seen the canal as high as this before, lapping the bottom of the supporting beams in the jetties. The boat had risen so high that she was pulling over on her bow mooring rope, it had got so tight.

So, no cruise today. Tonight's forecast says there will be no rain tomorrow, but 24 mph winds! Friday might be OK.

We shall see.
