Stop trying to cover up your wife's actions, on opening the bill, with the old 'walked into the door' story ;)

Yes! The beck through town is about to burst it's banks, I've never seen it so high, and I expect the fields will be in the river Aire at Connonely. I've had to put my mud tyres on for SUnday. Cheers, Marc!

Carleton just on look north as flooded, but lightly and non problematic.

When I said good weather I meant not minus 5 and not plus 32. So I left some flexibility in there :lol:

Seriously. Weekend looks sound and we are heading upwards from water courses. Am I making this worse for myself?

I'm bringing a all sorts of tat including some karma wheels if any of you need some for a hack. There's a cheap early 90's Tequesta with a stuck post going cheap if anyone fancies a challenge and the Al Carter and Wheeler will be thrown in the 1st open car boot I see :wink:
