That was the storm that wasn’t…

Not up here in Staffordshire, anyway. It looks like the south and south-west got well battered though. We had rain on and off for most of the night, but the gales didn’t materialise. It was breezy, but nothing like as bad as we expected.

I did Wheaton Aston a disservice yesterday, the towpath alongside the village moorings is not as bad as I made out.

Turner’s Garage is still trying to keep the reputation of having the cheapest diesel on the network. It’s 75.9 p/Lt today.

We’re toddle on tomorrow, probably finishing up at Norbury Junction.
