    The River Salwarpe was close to the brim yesterday afternoon but has lowered a bit this morning. I'm not sure it will cope with much more rain though.

    It's hard to believe the rain I've seen on the TV. It was stifling here yesterday... hot, humid and sunny. (We've still got a hosepipe ban)

    I hope all you soggy geeks are OK.

    Newcastle was a complete washout, 5hrs to drive 4 miles, got home to find a new river flowing along the path at the front of our house and the lake at the back had risen by 3ft in a couple of hours. We had a knock at the door from a council official telling us to get packed to leave for the night. It was within 1/2 inch of coming through the from door at the highest point but luckily never got in. It's the end of the world coming I recon. 2012 phenomenon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It was a really lovely summer's day here yesterday - 26 degrees with a light breeze.
    Today? Chilly, wet, miserable
    Ah, summer

    We had around an hour of torrential downpour which saw water building up like crazy and several smallish leaks spring up around the school none of which thankfully affected anyone too much. A mate of mine, a builder by trade had 7 call outs in 30minutes to leaks at different locations including 2 into small business server rooms. This downpour was folloed by lovely sunshine and 22C+ temperatures its just so strange to have lovely blue sky then the darkest clouds known to man hovering a few miles away.

    Journey home last night and to work today took abit longer with several de-tours from road closures ended up being about 45miles today. Horrifically a man was found drowned only a few miles from here, an old teacher from our school I'm told about 15years ago! RIP

    Yeah It was a nice day down here yesterday as well. We are 1 of the lucky ones in the South East that are not in a hosepipe ban anymore!

    Took the kids sailing yesterday and it was great. Warm sunshine and strong winds. Lots of swimming. It's the first dry session we've had this summer but there was a lot of paddling as the lake was up by 30cm.

    Flooded here at work and about 2-3 inches in my house. Up until about 2am getting the water and mud out, now got the dehumidifiers running and waiting on the insurance assessor.

    Mopping up around here after yesterday.
    One school was hit by lightening sending the alarm system up the wall, then a tree was hit and fell down on the playground, then a mini tornado went up the side of the school taking another tree with it!
    Another school had part of its roof fall in, the Deputy's office and the staff room are sodden.

    Beautiful day today though

    Must be a nightmare, I hope there's not too much damage.
