Our old friend 'Older' would be coming out with all sorts of stats with this never ending rain. It's turning into a mid season break for grounds teams as there's such little opportunity to do anything. No end in sight this week. 

Someone turn off that tap. 

Dear old 'older' would be coming out with good and sound helpful suggestions for grounds too Paul. He will be for ever missed - rest in peace Dave.

From 17 December, the west cornwall area hasn’t had a 24hr period without some sort of precipitation.

From this date nearly 300mm has hit the ground. While this is not the wettest period I’ve known, it is, nevertheless challenging. As a side note, while snow does undoubtedly make the ground sodden, there is relatively little water in it. As a rough guide a foot of snow is an inch of water. There is obviously, very little that can be done about it.  Besides the obvious things such as aeration (when the ground conditions allow) Does anybody use a penetrant type of wetting agent. In basic terms it allow the ground to absorb water faster and more efficiently.

Amazing that we are still under a hose-pipe ban and according to SW Water there is a severe water shortage !!! 

Only in this country 🤪
