Monday 9 January
Surprise, surprise I was sheltered from the wind and the sun was shining brightly in an almost clear blue shy, and remained that way all day. And I now know why the area to the left of the Titchfield canal footpath is called "Posbrook Floods!" The meadows were flooded and even the canal was overflowing its banks in places so jolly good job I was wearing Wellington Boots rather than walking boots let alone trainers!
