I can tell you exactly when I get the videos back as most cameras record timing but unfortunately the hard drives went off this afternoon with the guy who is revamping my server. This sort of data can be very handy - we used it a while back to ascertain which Green Holes I had taken photos in on a diving trip in Ireland a while back. I can give you an estimate that between the time we went in when the water had just started to flow through the uppermost pipe  and when we came out to find the water entering the blockhouse was about 2  hours maximum as all we did was go down the Dry Way, pause for ten minutes in the Old Grotto while we attempted to use a jet washer on the stal (as you do!) and failed due to the filter blocking in the turbid water., visit the Water chamber, watch the pair struggling then after a brief visit to the Lavatory Pan came out.

Wow that's some scarey stuff, especially the exit. The final version can do with some dramatic music and then you will be famous like that guy we once took caving (Never again) who got stuck in a tube and almost got half a million u-tube hits lol.
Anything I say is represents my own opinion and not that of a any club/organisation that I am a member of (unless its good of course)

Hi Mike

My Davis Vantage Vue w/station has a tipping rain gauge.
 Where were the EA figures recorded?
As a comparison on 4 October  GaugeMap shows= Priddy 45.8mm ; Stoke Bottom Farm 28.6mm; Grove Farm 44.2mm.
 mine 55.8mm

This shows big variations within a few miles

I would agree with the comment regarding variations.

Come on then, Alex. We'd best have a link to that  ;D

That really is good. Considering that it was 'casually' produced as you infer, why is it that a lot of other peoples videos are so poor by comparison.
A really exciting trip as well, nice one.
Usually lighting...

Yes there is variation across quite small distances, but the position of the gauge can also affect how much "misses" it, or if the wind tips it before full, depending on prevailing direction etc.

Hi, Mr O'Doc could I ask what underwater lights you were using?

Perhaps we can combine footage some time and put together something for a future HE with voice overs from the participants.

I assume people have been since. I wonder if anything has moved...

My feelings as well. I have incorporated observations and warnings into my Descent article.

It would be helpful if you could name this parts of the cave and the cavers moved through the various chambers etc.

From the flow going in, I wouldn't be surprised if the passage linking to the bottom of Jacob's Ladder had reopened. It's not on the survey, but opened itself a few years ago, before filling back up again...
Hoping to get down tonight, so will report back if I notice anything of interest.
