the back door is still deep (well, the water is), but not getting deeper.......we have no drainage there tho so not sure on what we will do if it starts heavy again.......
I have just got the batteried toys in from the conservatory.....longe looks like a bomb site!
and the kitchen has many pans catching the water. it is coming in thro the vent from the boiler..........worrying tho that the pilot light will go out and leave us without heating (well, not cold and needing heating yet, but it still does the water)
Pyschomum - theres potentially a fair bit more of heavy rain to come. Can you make sand bags - sandpit sand and carrier bags work pretty wellput a sheet of plastic down first - then load the bags against it two deep. If it looks really really urgent garden soil will do trick.
Get an emergency box together NOW. Off the top of my head:
Torch, any important medicines, insurance documents, fully charge mobile phone, bottled water.
Get everything small that is at floor level moved asap. Unplug electrical items (assuming sockets are at skirting level) and make sure wires are not trailing.
Start stacking furniture that could be damaged by water.
If water does start coming in (and watch out for it coming up through carpets - under the house fills up and then it suddenly breaches the floorboards), turn off the electricity at the mains. Sorry to sound gloomy but after last year and what I went through...
Good plan. The sky is much brighter now than it was. We drove back from swimming in it, the drains have given up and the roads were flooding up here. I haven't seen so much come down in such a short time before.
