Anyone suffered today? We tried to get over to Warwick and had to turn back in the end. Some of the floods I did drive through were pretty scary. I even saw two lads on bikes, respect to them as some drivers were just not slowing down.

I bet Worcester is flooded as per usual. What race course?
In four years at university there it never failed to amuse me how unprepared the town was. Has it changed?

I'm not sure how Worcester was today, we had to try to get to Bromsgrove from Evesham, managed it with only one turn back, then went across to Redditch which was fine, then from there to Stratford, but had to turn round at Henley in Arden, then drive through 5 floods to Stratford, a couple were quite hairy.
Couldn't get down to Warwick so stuck to the main roads back home.

Was lovely here today for the most part, just a bit cold. Was still a right hoot to get out and play with the traffic!

Now you're just bragging!

I was so surprised when we went out, as I'd heard other area's had it bad, but nothing reported round here.
I feel for those hit hardest.

Do you know what! I've just realised that I've not worried about my boat, first time ever! It was the best thing I did moving it from the River!

The good thing about all this rain is its washed all the KY jelly (or whatever it is the councils are using) off the roads, great day to scrub in the new front tyre
