It's raining hard and has been all day.
The marina staff are doing regularly at patrols to check that all the boats are safe. If their ropes are too tight and The levels rise The boat can list. The staff will also be checking pram and cratch covers as they can sometimes fill with water.
The water levels are up and down like a bride's nighty on her honeymoon.
The rains is hammering down and the staff at the nearby mill are manning the sluices attempting to keep the water levels even.
When I get off the boat to walk Beano there can be anything from a six inch step down to a four inch step up.
Without the sluices being manned we'd be up on the grass by now.
