Yes we have had that much rain. 11 mm last night( just shy of half an inch in old money). Although the rainfall has been average for the autumn, this was slightly exaggerated by a dryish October.So effectively we have had 3 months rainfall in only 2 months!!
Put that with clay based soil that this part of surrey (esp Redhill) and Sussex is famed for, the the result is rather heavy soil already at saturation point. No amount of spiking or putting sand down is not going make any effect.
Also, we don't seem to get normal rain anymore. Its always very heavy and very quick now, rather than a nice slow drizzle.
Its all very hellish at the golf club now, but at least we are open. Leatherhead Golf club was closed this week!!!
If only golf and cricket could be played on 3g!!!
