With the rain pouring down I decided not to go into town, but have a “duvet day”. Only once I opened the bedroom curtains did I have a bit of a shock! When we brought our cottage the searches did mention prone to flooding, but in the 2 years we’ve been here hadn’t seen any sign of floods…serves me right for thinking the summer holiday was getting a bit boring. It turns out the pond at the top of the hill has burt it’s banks and is flowing towards us.
I pulled on my finest pink floral wellies and headed outside. What’s nice about where I live is that when a crisis happens, be it a blackout etc.., all the neighbors come out and help. I was running around on “operation makeshift sandbag” buy clonazepam online with no prescription while nextdoor was trying to locate the drains to check they were not blocked (he also got soaked thanks to some idiot in a 4×4 racing through the flooded road). At the worst point in our drive the water is about 7 inches deep. We also phoned the council over 2 hours ago, but there is still no sign of the sandbags. I bet if we had been council property they would have been here over like a shot. At it’s peak the water was about 1 inch from coming our house, it has subsided a bit, but there is more rain on the way. Friends are coming for the weekend so I hope it doesn’t get worse.
While one neighbor was making cups of tea I took out my treacle cakes.
