Default Raining in the UK- no s^%t, really!

There's many in the Southwest of the UK who've been suffering for the last 7 weeks due to record rainfall. It's relentless. Houses flooded, communities cut off, politicians being filmed standing in a puddle with full safety gear on (hard hat, safety glasses, in a puddle?). anyhow, you get the picture.

You'd think Andy's immune to this living on the top of a hill in the middle of nowhere, well, you'd be wrong. Thankfully, my new storm drain installation is earning it's money (we used to get terrible problems with water running across the property), but all that water has to go somewhere, & it ends up in our valley. Our valley is the only way in or out for us, & all roads are currently closed. The main road is under 5ft of water, cars abandoned everywhere. Even when the floods drain, it will probably take a day or so to remove all the vehicles so we can use the road again.

I recorded 106mph gusts on my wind indicator today, & there's another storm due in Friday. I believe our American cousins are also due unseasonably high snow fall tomorrow, so to all who are weather challenged right now - keep safe.
