Its been Raining a heck of a lot in my area for the last week. Over 14" since last monday and I know it is over that as the bucket I use to judge rainfall is now overflowing. I have been driving around the area today and I knew everything was getting waterlogged due to the number of closed roads about.
Well tonight we have just got our Flood warning. Our house should not be affected but taking no chances. Been down to the bike shed and made certain that everything is up off the floor and also moved the chickens up to the highest point of the garden. Don't think we will have much more rain tonight but all that rain that fell on the higher ground to the North of us is now draining into the local river (Usually a 20ft wide stream really) and that is already pretty high. We are 30ft above the usual river level but The low point of my garden isn't.
And if you are thinking about coming to England in the next month or so--Make certain you bring your waders and a Goretex. The forecast is not good.
