Big floods in the valley here Duncan. I really struggled to get home on Monday evening. Having traversed several road floods up to the doors of my car, I was defeated by one flood because the flow was just too fast. Final challenge - the lane to my house. Predictably, it was a 1 in 4 gradient river. Required full throttle in first gear to fight the water, but I got there. My driveway was totally dry, thanks to my recently installed flood drainage scheme. Those pipes were operating at full bore!!!
