Sunshine and rain

I was going to post about the 3D printed kayak but Tillerman got there first so instead back to that old blighty favourite, the weather.

It was of course a rather wet January and there was so much water coming downriver from the flooded Thames valley that the barrier had to be raised day after day after day.

In fact it was raised a grand total of 50 times in just a few weeks - which is a problem as for maintenance reasons the maximum number of times the Thames Barrier is meant to be raised per year is 50.

Fortunately spring seems to have arrived more or less with last weekend being spectacularly sunny.

And in the good weather we can come out to play with our toys, printed or not. In the video above someone has a rather impressive toy helicopter equiped with a GoPro camera.
