Than sunday it did the same then today it was ok . It started raining lightly but nevertheless we got back pretty quickly as we got some pretty quiet patches of motorway so we managed 70-80 and the traffic only started as we got say 10miles out from manchester .There is no flooding in manchester but i hope everyone else stays safe during the floods
He does live there, & didn't you see my sympathetic posts to him?

Yeah some places have no clean running water at all .Other people have lost homes and businesses . people ave also lost pets and i dunno if anyone has died as i have been on holiday so i havent been keeping up with the news as much . The weather on friday though was terrible so i am not suprized there are more floods . I mean on the motorway we could not see much . And every time a lorry went past you got covered in spray it was a pretty scary experience

Yeah i know brook it is a pretty scary time wondering if you are about to get flooded or not overnight

better make that a boat if the floods continue . I was just looking thorough them pictures and didn't realize how bad it relay was as the news didn't show too much and i wasn't exactly paying too much attention whilst on holiday

The reason I was so confident was because I live in a small village overlooking the market town of Newport 5 miles away, that town lies in a natural "bowl", & all the surrounding [beautiful!] countryside, & villages look down on it.
