Water, Water etc!

One of these days I will get to Brigg. Maybe!

With the weather as it is the sluices are being opened as the river rises and it makes the depth of water somewhat unreliable. It therefore – I have been told – makes it difficult to get boats in and out of the lock.

To sort of prove my point. Here at Saxilby two days ago the boat started to lean more than just a little to port and on inspection of the ropes I found the water had risen more than I had realised.

Today with the snow starting again the water has dropped and the line of ice left on the bank is the previous level of the water.

As you can imagine the ropes are now just a little bit more on the slack side.
