Creeping, creeping up the country the torrential rain, the flooding, the thunderstorms. It began to cloud in here mid morning and has now completely clouded over with dampness in the air.
The farmer has got all his hay but one field and that is not quite ready, so this afternoon he cut losses and persuaded the owner of the field to have it silaged and baled instead. The alternative was to leave it for another day to dry a bit more. Too big a risk.
As usual with the English weather, three fine days in a row is about as much as we can manage.
