 This evening, we had a short sharp heavy rain shower lasting only for 15 minutes or so and we had about 20mm of rain land on us! Generally, our new improved defences are working much better, but only just! The Loke rushed down and pooled at the bottom and got within an inch of our […]

Another flood and Energy Module Number 4 Rises!

We had another very heavy thunderstorm that dropped nearly an inch of rain in a matter of minutes (about 15 minutes in all)!! The protection we have installed to stop the workshop ground water worked just fine and also the barrier on the Loke also worked. But only by diverting the rainwater to the other […]

 This morning saw quite a lot of rain come down and we didn’t fancy working out there in the wet stuff! But it looks like it has cleared up for the afternoon so we will resume work after lunch.

See the little movie of the “river” gushing out of their workshop area (river starts at 12:24 and lasts for over half an hour!). As you can see what damage their water has caused! So we decided to mount a barrier […]

Minor Flood Number 2 Stops Play!

Last night, we had well over 40mm (1½ inches) of rain in about 6 hours. There is lots of puddles everywhere! But as usual, the workshop caused another flood! Again it etched away the soil and managed to get under the fence and run downhill into our area. We will have to put up an […]

At 4pm this afternoon, we had a lovely big thunderstorm roll over us and interrupted our work. We did wonder if it would miss us entirely as we could see the dirty black cloud off West of us and it was rolling Northwards, shouting at us with lots of deep booming angry crashes! But alas, […]
