Checking on Gauge maps we already knew we’d not be in with any chance of heading out onto the river today. The rain that fell on the Welsh hills had just started to reach us from a couple of days ago, this will be followed with what has fallen today, which will be more than we had here!
For something to do we wandered down to the river for a look. Sure enough the river was flowing faster and the level board by the broad lock was having it’s numbers covered. When we first arrived the level was below 8, this morning 10 was visible and by the afternoon that had been submerged too.
It looks like we’re going to be here for a while, unless we give up and go the long way round.
With nothing better to do we decided to start on a box set. Earlier in the year Bridget and Storm leant us Breaking Bad, which we’ve never seen. We’d been told to stick with it and then we’d be hooked running out of battery power wanting to watch the next episode. After two episodes it is amusing and we’ll certainly keep watching. If it does start to grip us we may have to go hunting for a new electric card as we only have a couple of units left!
0 locks, 0 miles, 12 to 14” up on yesterday, 2 red lights, 1 person on the soggy rides, 1 sock sorted, 2 episodes, 1 fire left to go out.
