Uncertainty with the weather was an issue today. "To paint or not to paint?" that was the question. While the decision was being made the team set to work edging the lock and preparing the top gates should should it be decided to go ahead. After much searching of the sky painting went ahead with fingers crossed. Even with a continuous parade of boaters using the lock (how dare they!) the job was completed and the paint dried enough before the rain eventually came. A substantial amount of lock edging was also achieved.
