How much rain?!

Got to the allotment early afternoon. Gladys, a few plots from me, was packing up and about to head home. We sat in the sun, it was quite warm, and chatted about life.

Over on my allotment the ground was sodden from all the rain overnight. Looking at my rain gauge, which I had emptied yesterday, was nearly full. Overnight 31mm of rain had fallen! It's no surprise then that social media was full of local streets under flood water.

Over 31mm of rain fell in 12 hours

I packed up and walked home. As I did I noticed how colourful the streets were with their yellow, orange and brown leaves gently falling from the trees. I got home 40 minutes later and settled in with a warm cuppa tea.
