Flooding 31st August 2008

Topic: London Skittles

James and I met up at the FMA at about 6:30. The alley was not at all as we had expected. The staff had done a great job and clearing most of the water away yesterday (Sunday) afternoon, so that there was only a small pool left under the frame and on the right hand side (where water usually collects). The seems to have been about 6-9 inches of water in the gutter around the frame from the "plimsole" line left on our new white canvas.

James and I cleared up the last of the water, and lifted the frame up slightly so that the water under the frame could clear, and air could circulate. I'll have a look at the frame tomorrow and clear away any new water pooling. We are both hoping that the water was cleared away fast enough from the gutter to prevent too much soaking into the timbers and causing warping of the top maple skin. Only time will tell.

Needless to say there will be no skittles tomorrow night.

Pete
