Drove from Edinburgh south yesterday. Serious downpour north of Coldstream almost stopped all traffic.
Too late for WBarley, might help the wheat.
SBarley will take some cutting being only 9" tall including the head!

Had several savage showers in the night and one during breakfast so I hopped on the bike to go and check the hydro filters expecting to see a lot of junk come down the brook and a healthy surplus of water.

Had to sheet some freshly bedded sandstone ridges in the rain, oh joy.

Different subject, but what dashcam do you have, very clear pictures.

edited.
I only fitted it on Wednesday.
There is a button to stick to the dash to make it take snaps.
