>Update on flooding

>DD is on cloud nine as her school is closed tomorrow but we couldn’t have got there even if it were open as the car is still where I left it on a hill near my office. The whole area has been really bad affected & a man died this afternoon after being trapped in a manhole not far from us

DH’s work mate who help us get DD from school & brought us all home has unfortunately been unable to get home himself. His wife is also stuck so their 14 year old daughter is at home alone with a dog & five cats

MIL has water coming through her kitchen ceiling & no electricity in the kitchen & DH feel powerless as he can’t go & help her.

The rain is predicted to ease off over night but I can imagine there will still be lots of problems here tomorrow.

I’m just so glad we bought a house on a hill. Do you remember me mentioning a house that we viewed last year flooding recently? It’s bad again & DH captured it on a video:

The dogs are not impressed as they hate getting wet but at least the cats can use the cat tray in the conservatory.

ETA: DH has just spoken to his sister & they’re just about to be flooded. They’re trying to get things upstairs & have 3 young children. Poor DH he feels so helpless that he can’t help his Mother & Sister.
