I feel desperately sorry for those people in the south west and Wales caught in the recent flooding. The pictures from the news are shocking. We didn’t suffer quite so badly, merely having the road past the end of our drive flood to the point where it was too deep to drive through. A number of car drivers found this out the hard way and both I and the neighbouring farmer towed several cars out using tractors.
This is what it looked like on the morning of Saturday 24th November, when it had been raining pretty much non-stop for a couple of days. Our drive is the first right in the first image.
And the following morning, when it was far too deep to wade down to the far end to take a photo from there…
By the Monday and Tuesday it had risen even further, mostly I think from rainwater running off the surrounding fields.
