Flood no. 2....6 weeks and four days after flooding in October.

Six weeks and four days exactly, since Soggibottom flooded at the start of October.


I wish I could say that the photo of Freya was taken six weeks ago, but it was taken at 8.a.m. this morning.


We aren't the only ones in the South West of England today. There are houses and cars that have been trapped by flood water.


If anyone ever wonder's exactly what  colour the water is when you get flooded, mostly it's this colour.


Not such a beautiful muddy red, kind of sewerage dirt and who knows what else.
Can there be anything else ?


Our little car has been bashed by someone who wasn't looking where they were going earlier this year.
She's now survived flood water for the second time.. Luckily it was parked where the old garage used to be and the spot is slightly raised from the rest of the road.


The cottage window boxes survived again..


With help from our flood gate that was in the front of the door all night, our bed quilts and some of the contents of my linen cupboard. We managed to keep most of the cottage dry inside this time.


We also have sandbags around the doors. More heavy rain forecast over the next few days, we are all taking our turn for water watch.

I am so sorry you have to go through this again, cannot imagine having to go through floods, never mind twice in a row. Prayers that the water will recede and the rains will stay away for the rest of the winter.

Oh my word, twice in two months. Not good at all. I do hope the weather forecast is wrong and that the rain clouds relieve themselves elsewhere.
Try to keep your sense of humour Midge and give Freya a big hug from us in Canada. It doesn't look like there's a dry spot for her outside.

I was thinking about all who are living in the areas where the flood warnings were while we were being pounded by wind and rain last night. Heard in the news this morning that there were many affected again by flood waters and many stranded. Hope you were able keep that water out.

The photographs are dreadful! I have never seen flooding like this. I really hope the rain lets up and the damage is minimal. You must be so tired of all of this by now.
