It was grim in Yorkshire today we were working not that far from York, a place called Market Weighton. Nice to have a local job in the pi$$ing rain all day!

Yes Ratty, and what a feck up it was. The management company who have run the site supplied all the parts we were there to fit it, to be fair they are usually very good, but someone got this one wrong.

 

We needed 2" guide rails, we got inch n a quarter, we needed the biscuit on top of the chamber the right way round, guess what?, we needed the main contractor not to move the control panel cabinet and bury the ducting.

 

Never mind, I did get to cut 300mm off a 110mm rising main before I realised the compression joint was 90mm.

 

7 hrs n 550 miles later we achieved feck all. I'd made my mind up I wasn't going back tomorrow, so I'm having a little sweet number, it's down the smoke though.

Brought back the timber yesterday from a large Beech dismantling. Got it all into manageable pieces and under cover before end of the day. Now for  a day on the splitter and sawbench under cover + changing chipper blades and servicing kit. Defo not climbing today💩

Still raining, so we have had 36hrs of it so far with one let up at about 5ish last night for half an hour or so, local river peaked last night at 4,14 mtrs, it has been running over the top of the banks and spilling out on to farm land most of the night and still is, just spoke to a lad on the edge of this flooded area and he has just said there was about 5-6000 pinkfooted geese on his and farm next door yesterday, geese have come back this morning and where looking a bit lost as  where they where yesterday is now under 3-4ft of water,
