What a Washout! is a magazine story.
The rain is causing problems for everyone. It slows Duck down, and one of his empty trucks that have been filled with rain water opens and splashes all over Percy. Next, a leaky drainpipe at Tidmouth Sheds soaks Gordon. Then, dust from the china clay pits mixes with the rain and turns Bill and Ben's paintwork stripy. Later, Salty turns up covered in sea spray. Finally, a cleaner at Knapford throws a dirty bucket of water into the Fat Controller's top hat.
