Here we go again

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.

Our stream has burst it's banks again

This is the outflow from the bridge

This is downstream a bit, where you usually would have to cross the fence and go down a hill to reach the water

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.

normally how we get home, called The Sands.

the garage where they probably won't be doing much on the cars today

the road into our village

floodgates up at the police station..

and down the street a bit.

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.

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