Tad Damp?
« on: September 14, 2017, 09:14:37 am »
We've got an easegil and Argyle visit scheduled this weekend. Given the recent amounts of rainfall are there any suggestions for interesting trips that are likely to be still passable?

I'm sort of surprised there hasn't been any photos of places in flood.
If the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off.

Forecast seems to be scattered showers, some heavy, possibly thundery over next few days, so avoid streamways, but not too much flooding at the weekend.

Forecast appears changeable?  Met Office doesn't show much to worry about rain wise at all.

Water levels seemed a little high yesterday, but nothing dangerous, eureka junction was passabe and main drain easy going. Baring any further rain I think pretty much any trip will be ok this weekend

Thanks all - yes it had all dropped down to normal levels by the weekend. Signs of impressive recent flooding though. We were sharing Bull Pot with some from the CCC who'd done the 88ft pitch. Apparently choice words were muttered/exclaimed when they encountered a foot wide ring of foam only 20ft from the top!

Sleets gill was re-surging last Monday, so yep I can believe the foam ring.
