Yesterday was a very wet day. Storm Ali and Storm Bronagh sweeping in off the Atlantic.
First was Ali, on Wednesday; second Bronagh last night overnight (and indeed now whilst I type this). Both storms bringing with them wind and rain.
Yesterday however, the calm between the storms was nothing like. A band of rain pulled between the two of them sat across the country for most of the afternoon and evening and caused localised flooding and high rivers around Sheffield.
My usual 40 minute commute home from the site I was on took almost an hour and a quarter due to closed roads, queues, and some major floods.
Today should be a finer day, although there’s a loop out in the Atlantic which could twist up into another storm for Sunday to Monday.
Hannah is supposed to be going camping this weekend too. We’re not sure if that’s still happening.
