April Showers and Side Returns

Constructing a Side Return in the rain is never fun, especially when working during the wettest month recorded in over 100 years.

But this is how we did it - get out the tarp, and keep digging. Some sweet tea helps too, and our groundsmen stopped for the odd cup or two.

So, just how wet was April 2012? Well, when going to press, there was 97mm of rain recorded between 1-25 April - which equates to 139% of the long-term monthly average (1971-2000). [Source: Met Office website].
