    We've been lucky and, although it's not stopped raining since 1pm yesterday, we're okay here. But DH is a greenkeeper, and he's been to work this morning and the golf course is underwater!

    I've just been watching the news and people have been stuck for 12 hours on the motorways! And in one place, there are 20,000 cars just stranded!

    What is happening with the weather???????????

    I hope everyone else is okay and no-one has been flooded out.:hugs:

    This weather is so so tragic. Im terrified of flooding. We had it really bad up here last month, touch wood, we escaped it.

    I have just heard on the radio that premature twins from Tweksbury (sp) have died after they were rescued from their home. Now thats tragic.
