A couple of the roads near our village were closed today due to all the heavy rain we have had. Some drivers chose to ignore the conditions and were very nearly caught out by the standing water. In the village, the pub carpark was flooded, which in turn almost flooded our and our neighbour houses. Our neighbour and I managed to get the drain covers up out side the house that took most of the water away. A couple of us then spent most of the afternoon bailing out the pub carpark, its amazing how much water a snow shovel can shift. Let’s hope this rain stops soon.
