Thanks folks. After a particularly shitty day at work it’s nice to be appreciated somewhere. 

Right off to play my guitar very loudly and in anger to let off some steam

 

sorry neighbours 

 

beer may follow

Wonder if we’ll get deebeedoobee on 1,000 upvotes before the festival starts.

RAM jam jar = no rain recorded in 24 hours

Well sticky sick = no water in well. Mud showing at 3 inches but good to firm.

big dogs paws = dry. Some slobber from gob after walk

ground dry, no mud

warmer today and some patchy sun.

And that folks is the definitive accurate comprehensive trustworthy report.  Accept no others (apart maybe from other pilton reporters)

Just left site. Not too bad. Gateway into Crew Field blocked to avoid swampification but ground still very firm.

Fab - thanks for the video update!

If we can have one of those every hour on the hour for the next 13 days, it would be appreciated 👍

Can confirm, the last couple of weeks has been a bit of a rollercoaster though thankfully, it looks like we dodged the worst of the weather!

@Sawdusty Surfer thanks for the update. Looks like we'll be able to get pegs in with no bother

Sorry if this pic has worried anyone. Don't worry!

I chose that view as it is the only really bad bit I've seen. It is the main entrance to the crew field and so has the largest volume of traffic of any gateway onsite that doesn't benefit from hardstanding. 

Pretty much everywhere is still solid.

So we had rain over night. It is currently  NOT raining in Pilton but looking very overcast.
 
RAM jam jar = 3mm rain fell over night

Well sticky stick = no water in well. Mud showing at 3.5 inches soft to wet

big dogs paws = Refuses to go out. Must have a bladder the size of a space hopper by now.

ground wet

 

will update this afternoon after I’ve dragged the mutt out (by the collar if necessary) and walked the top of the farm.

Best person, dog, well, stick and jar on the internet
