Not much in the way of rain, locally, so far this week, possibly flippers and a snorkel instead of a canoe :D
My boss is working like a dog this week to make up for having friday off. Midnight finish last night and 7am start this morning :evil:
So forgive me if I nod off friday evening :wink:

Yeah just been checking the forecasts....looks like a rough one chaps. Rain & mud I can live with. Localised flooding and high winds at the same time, I dont find so fun.
