Wednesday 10th September
I’m feeling almost as gloomy as the weather – our holiday is well and truly off.
We’ve had almost 24 rain-free hours in Surrey so I optimistically rang Gloucester Lock for an update – it wasn’t good news!
The lock definitely won’t open this week and it’s doubtful whether it’ll be open before the weekend of the 20th (if we don’t have any more rain).
For followers of the weather, we use Metcheck. As we’re watching out for rainfall that will affect the Severn we’re checking the weather in Llanidloes – the nearest town to the river’s source!
Yes, I’m afraid so, our cruising plans are utterly dependent on there being no rain in Wales – we’re DOOMED, DOOMED I tell you!!!!!
