Chaos normally gets about 500 litres of water stored up in his cover - he uses it instead of a water barrel.

There was galleons in there... (in-as-much as you cudda re-floated HMS Victory) ...definitely losing heart here, might just get some water lilies and stick some koi carp in....

You can see the sort of depth we got on the North Downs by looking at my tractor roof - so it's hardly surprising (photo is for real - it's not distorted!). Could be worse, though. My problems are small. Could have been in Australia...
