    Tonbridge has the highest water levels since October 2000. Sainsbury's is an island surrounded by water. Fortunately, it was built raised, with gangways going to it so the store is till open... parking is a bit dodgy though!

    Green house is a bit smashed and a few branches came down, saw a bus get wedge on the width restrictions on our road after they diverted the down our street after the canal flooded but other than that we've survived. Hope Santa has some stabilisers...!

    River Wey and River mole have burst their banks. Sections of Box Hill, Guildford and a number of small villages are flooded with road and rail blockages everywhere. Brighton mainline is also hit with fallen trees being cleared just for landslides to trigger between Gatwick and Croydon.

    Thank goodness I live on a hill!

    Had a bit of felt tear off on the shed but I've managed to nail it back down. It's due to be replaced anyway. I hope nobody has any serious issues, especially if they affect tomorrow's festivities.

    My poor sister, out in the New Forest, has had no power since last night. She hasnt been able to do her final bits of cooking and they dont want to open the fridge or freezer either. Luckily they have a wood burner and are going elsewhere on Christmas day but it isnt a great start to the festivities

    Tonbridge town centre is going under. The High Street is being evacuated as the Medway floods worse than it did in 2000. Thankfully I live on a hill, but many friends are in trouble

    The fence between us and the noisy neighbours came down on Xmas Eve. LeBoyfriend has braced it up but now it's sagging the other way. According to our documentation, said neighbours are responsible for that fence line. That'll be a fun conversation to have...

    It's very (very) windy here in Preston today (50-60 mph). It was also recycling day, so there is papers, cans, recycling bins and other stuff all flying around the neighborhood!

    Speak to them and if they don't get their ass in gear speak to the council. It is their duty to maintain party boarders.

    Well winds took out a fence post and two panels over night had to rescue one pannel before it damaged the neighbours car.

    Been out and re-infoced one panel and fixed a split fence out back.

    Seem to repair the same fence in different parts each year.

    Aye indeed. Although it is proving it that is the issue. Not everyone will have the same documents we do as I assume their copies of the deeds are still kept by their mortgage provider - ours aren't.

    The roof covering has blown off the shed so mrwITch has had to go out with some covering, liquid rubber and clout nails. But it seems OK now

    9 time out of 10 it is your fence to the left of your property as you look out the back... I think. Regardless left or right it is normally the same. The council will also know that too!
