    Well i am the out skirts of Gloucestershire, my parents are near the city centre. Fortuntaley we have power back but my parents water went yesterday and now our went this am, I went out to the local shops to get some water as i hadn't had chance to fill the bath, the shops were mental people filling two trolleys with bottled water it really wasn't fair to the older people who were trying to get some too. People were fighting over water.

    My parents and my self have boats on the River Avon just above Teweskbury so we are unsure if they are ok, we took pictures from a distance, our friends boats have sunk and caravans have floated away it is utter devastation everywhere.

    Here are afew pics

    Thanks, the scary thing is we were supposed to be going on a boat holiday this week on out boats i hate to think what would have happened if we had been down river at the time.
