Delayed departure

Last night's rain was pretty spectacular. Yesterday the River Calder was low, today it is more than two feet above the red line on the lock safety markers.

When the river is this swollen the problem is the speed of the flow - easily more than Honey's engine can cope with.

All we can do is wait for the water to subside which, after twelve weeks without rain and one night of storms, shouldn't be long.
