It is not much of a picture but the view shows Sonflower on her mooring as the flood waters rise.
I have just loosened her mooring lines to allow for more movement.
The paddles are all open on the lock and the current is now significant here. The water still appears to be rising.
The sky has cleared and the rain has stopped but the water will continue to run down from the Warwickshire Hills for a few hours yet.
Unfortunately, I have not been able to get out to the flood alleviation barrier site. The scene must be quite interesting there.
