Re yesterday’s post, Rick points out that reservoirs might receive a lot of their supply from feeders over a wideish catchment area. I suspect he is right, although another thing puzzles me, and that is that most canal reservoirs are on high ground i.e near canal summits, so they are at a natural disadvantage in catching rain from feeders. The more I think about it, the more I realise I don’t know anything. Maybe I should read up on it.
Last night as I had finished posting we were in a big thunderstorm. Water was spilling over the gutters and the rain was really hammering on the roof. With all the thunder and lightning I thought I had better switch off the computer, but I had a quick look at the met office site before so doing. According to them we were in a sunny interval. Well they can’t be right all of the time.
