Well, despite what the Met office and BBC weather forecasters predicted, our British weather had its own ideas about what to do. Yep, you guessed, yet more rain, some quite heavy, fell, in what has been a very, very wet year.
Inert et al have ploughed on, aided and abetted by their land bridges. They have made, what I think is, spectacular progress on the dual infill and upfill of Cormorant lake (north). At this rate, I reckon another three weeks and the lake should have disappeared.
Inert do not even have to transport stuff over to the lake to complete the fill. They only need to dig out the lake that is supposed to sit just south of Cormorant lake (north), and use spoil from that; rather than hauling stuff over from either Chandlers farm or the pump station spoil heap.
Once Cormorant lake (north) is filled, there is the matter of the remainder of Cormorant lake (south) to infill, and the new, longer, mightier Manor lake (south) to dig out; plus the frilly bits of landscaping, etc.
Are we going to get a dry November? Well, apart from a deluge today, the first week of November appears to be set dry. Then the rains return next weekend. Only, the Met office and Beeb seem to get it so wrong.
