Lots of rain

4/11/2010

Hurtle pot in flood



Its been raining for over 24 hours now and the normally dry Chapel Beck is in full flood and Hurtle pot is overflowing with water. We have just been out in the dark to check water levels and its now 7 – 8 foot deep and almost up to road level. A few years ago the force of the water actually washed the bridge away but now a new bridge has been built we are all hoping it will hold.

We were just walking back home when a recovery lorry pulled up. Apparently a delivery van is stuck somewhere up the track to Ellerbeck.  Its pitch black, the winds are gale force and the rain is almost horizontal – what a night to break down!
