    I've just a few grands worth of AV kit. The wall kinda broke. It was like a waterfall.

    It's been a fun morning.

    Just been picking up submerged power cables, multi-socket extensions, laptop power supplies, etc. The staff room went from water coming through the door to top of my shoes in a couple of minutes...

    Rained every single day since April here. Just had to cut the lawn with a strimmer as it had got to over 2ft with no chance of cutting it with a lawn mower due to it being soaking! Next doors was up to 5ft before the council came with a strimmer.

    It's the wettest hosepipe ban on record. (I believe it is lifted now in many areas).
