Going to be another of those years by the look of it. Nearly flooded last Thursday, water lapping at the front doorstep but fortunately we seem to have got away with it this time.

We don't have flooding problems where we live Nick but some low lying parts do. In the 'old days' before the Derwent was redirected Matlock regularly flooded and the local quarry used Foden dumpers to ferry shoppers around the town.

Anyway I guess that this wont be the last rally to succumb to the weather this year unless things improve drastically. We were not attending Elvaston but it is a shame for the organizers none the less.
