Incredibly low albedo due to all the black leather.

Was talking to someone about download at the weekend and he kept talking about "the arena". Imagine having to go through security every time you wanted to enter or leave the camp sites and not being able to bring drink with you.

Looks like two bands of rain are split around the Pilton forcefield.

Thats one tasty storm on the corner of France tho:

I really want someone to make a T-Shirt or a flag that references the sticky stick and RAM jam jar etc

Imagine the knowing nods as you wander around the festival.

Yes! Someone with more skills than me do this please.

No need to worry, that huge grey fence around it should keep it contained in Northern France

Crazy, isn't it? Pictures like this really show why Glastonbury is 10 levels above anything else!

Ok here goes.

bin painting today was brutal.  Rain all day not heavy but persistent ground VERY wet.  We still have grass because no one can drive on it but it’s very wet.  Tracks are about 2inches deep with a mixture of water and mud.

rain is (I am told forecast most of tomorrow) please pray it misses the site..

hopefully things will dry up from Thursday.

sorry it’s not a positive update but it’s a honest update.

 I will post a update tomorrow.

Woah woah woah, but @deebeedoobee said there was less than 2mm of rain in the jar. That amount of devastation cant be true, so which one of you is telling fibs?
