So far at the Royal Bath and West.....
This is going to be more of a picture story than a narrative, methinks!
Well we arrived all bright-eyed and grins to set up and actually left all bright-eyed etc, as everything went to plan. It's such a relief when it's all in place, switched on and ready for action. Looking back I think we were lulled into a false sense of security with the balminess of the weather! What fools we were! Our weather system is all 'broked up'- what a load of rubbish! When we did eventually get a nice spell today, miserable monsoony mayhem came back late afternoon with a fearful vengeance! Within minutes the main drag was under 4-6 inches of muddy water, and no item of clothing was left dry from the driving rain- even underpinnings were saturated. I think I was 3 the last time I sat in such wet knickers!! I wish I could have stopped and taken some photos of people and their reactions to the deluge- what a variety! We fell squarely into the 6 year old kid- type reaction- wayhayyyyyyyyy! Warm rain is fabulous stuff! Although it wasn't nearly as funny having to wait for over an hour to get out of the boggy car park in a twin-axle, and even less funny now waiting to hear if the whole thing is called off. Oo. Fingers crossed for tomorrow.
