Yes I am watching the tennis but not to closely as I can't stand one of the players!!
Anyhow whilst we have power I thought I'd share some photos from about an hour ago. Just as we had lunch the sky went black and within moments the heavens opened and torrential rain started.
We knew we'd shut all the windows but could hear water. A quick check of the garages showed the one with doors at both ends had become an indoor pool with about 2 or 3 inches of water running through!! MrVV stores some of his ebay stock out there - fortunately most of it is on pallets but some things were on the floor :(
After getting the water moving out - it was time to take photos to add to my online diary (this blog);
The view from my bedroom window - you can see all the water rushing off our drive and down the gravel into the lane.
Anyone want a paddle??
Bertie got a good wash and proved how water tight he is!!
One view down our lane
The other way
In the middle - a teenage camera addict - who is toying with setting up his own blog sometime soon.
We went for a quick drive around the town - parts of it are sadly flooded and there were several fire engines pumping water away from houses and shops :(
Its got to stop soon - hasn't it??
Right back to the tennis - come on Roger ;)
