I've been in the South this week. Driving through Oxfordshire and Berkshire seeing the flooding is absolutely astounding and frightening. From my hotel window tonight I can see the Thames at Caversham. As teenager I spent many hours canoeing here; I wouldn't want to be on the water at the moment, it's certainly the highest and fastest flowing I've ever seen it.
The pictures below are from the BBC. I know this road, it's one I've travelled on a lot in the past, I've never seen it like this though - before and after pictures.

Changing the subject.
The Team GB Performance Weekend schedule is due to be released anytime soon. You'll find a link to it here on the Kennel Club web site. It follows a different format this year to reflect the new squad process, however there is still something here for grade 7 handlers wanting a taste of true international competition.
I hope you're managing to stay dry and safe through this appalling weather - have good luck.
