A very wet Reading in store...

As rain continues to fall, and parts of the campsite are reportedly under water, Reading Festival organisers insist they will be able to keep any waterlogging under control via the use of Thames sluice-gates and tons of wood-chips. The good news is that the forecast is for the rain to pass through overnight, with a drier day tomorrow and sunny spells on Saturday before the rain returns on Sunday evening.

Reading 2010

Well, the festival weekend's here at last. Sadly, I can't be there this year. Hope everyone has a fantastic (and safe) time, and doesn't get too wet, though that looks pretty unlikely at the moment.
