Here we go again

2009.11.18
pixel
Our stream has burst it's banks again
pixel
This is the outflow from the bridge
pixel
This is downstream a bit, where you usually would have to cross the fence and go down a hill to reach the water
pixel
This is the outflow in town. You can't see it very well, but where the water issues thru the 2 arches, it is humped up several inches higher than that just behind the stonework.
pixel
normally how we get home, called The Sands.
pixel
the garage where they probably won't be doing much on the cars today
pixel
the road into our village
pixel
floodgates up at the police station..
pixel
and down the street a bit.
pixel
Our reward for braving the floods. We had to get enough groceries to last a bit, as the rain will continue for the next 2 days.
pixel
Going into town was nervewracking, as the water was coming up so fast I didn't know if we would make it home. Thankfully, we made it, and there were croissants.

portreeslim tulip, not yet, we'll send up flares
kg, I don't know, but they would at least slow it down a lot

Oweena Those flood gates sure beat the sandbags we pile in the doorways.
