These youngsters walking home from school didn't seem particularly worried about getting wet feet!
The best way to keep your feet dry if you're this young.
Some houses in Appledram Lane North were already four feet under water.
Alternative flood footwear - bare legs dry more quickly than shoes and socks!
The firemen were very cheery and were doing their best to distribute sandbags.
Sorting out the next load of sandbags.
The scene at 4 o'clock this afternoon - water levels are likely to get higher yet....
The main A27 trunk road as you rarely see it. It's likely to be closed for at least another twelve hours as the section west of here is flooded under several feet of water.
tomie wow! impressive!!! it looks like Brittany :))

josy63 Impressive series Helen. Here, so certain places are in a worrisome situation.
Glad to know that your house isn't too many damages :)

Nellinka It looks really serious, but I like your cheerful attitude and presentation... praying for that area.

MoMac I'll wave a wand to clear this up !!! Too easy, hope your weather improves though.
What a great set of photographs you achieved I'm for no 4's solution.

Eileen Love that shot of the fireman carrying the sandbag - just right in every way!

liveandletlive WOW! These are such great shots Helen. It looks like all these people had to be aware that you were photographing them. And that didn't make you feel awkward?? I wish I had it in me to look someone straight in the face and take their photo but instead I try to "sneak." I hope that's the last of your rain for a while but really- AWESOME photos.

lgnelson Wow! Great reportage of a dramatic event! Hope all is well with you and Kevin.

Annbramwell Gosh, I thought we had it bad yesterday, but you guys had it worse, there were some localised floods in Bedford, but we are safe as our house is on higher ground... thank goodness... It looks like the ladies in No 1 & No 2 had the same wellies...
Annbramwell · 2012-06-12: 04:10
Jarvo Wow, I thought it was bad here, but we didn't get anything except a few big puddles. Absolutely super photos Helen. The first one reminded me of when I was a school kid on Canvey Island and we had a flood (not the famous one that killed about 50 people, but a smaller one about 20 years later) I remember as a failing miserably to sweep the water away with a broom until it all became too much to try.

Hope you all dry out OK.
Jarvo · 2012-06-12: 06:59
lookagain I noticed on Facebook that you were having some rather wet adventures here lately. This does NOT look like fun, but you've done a super job of capturing the "event."
lookagain · 2012-06-12: 10:00
NellyBly Very nice photo coverage...high water is so destructive..I'm sure the kids welcomed the change and challenge they way they do...We finally go some rain in the form of a thunderstorm..and, I had just given up and watered my roses really well..hope they are not too wet! Have buds again anyway.
NellyBly · 2012-06-12: 17:37
