It is raining. It hasn't stopped all day and we are watching the level in the canal rising. There is a steady flow toward the lock and over the top of the gates at the moment and everyone is wondering whether the weather will turn out to be like July last year when we were very nearly out of the cut and many premises locally were feet under water.
The forecast is for showers tomorrow, more rain on Friday and then more again Sunday.
At least there will be a day in between the downpours when the Cherwell might take a bit of the flow away.
Whether the weather be wet,
Or whether the weather be hot,
we'll weather the weather
whatever the weather.
Whether we like it or not
