    Our food siren went off about half an hr ago, its not stopped today and it doesn't look set to stop any time soon. Looks like Tod will be moping up by morning.:rolleyes:

    Me to. The wife used to be my food siren, but then the food stopped. Now she just wails, and there's nothing to eat when she shuts the **** up.

    I think the south of our beautiful county is taking a battering, although we in the northern lakes have had horizontal rain for about 16 hours with more forecast. The
    C &CC site at Derwentwater has been evacuated. The A66 bet Penrith & Keswick was closed and several roads in the Lakes impassable. Kendal, Keswick & Cockermouth are all watching the flood defences nervously.
    But its Cumbria; SUNSHINE tomorrow!!:):)

    Know the feeling.
    Big Yorkshire lad that flys with us tells all visitors to the field.
    "If you cannot see Mongorry hill it's raining, if you can see it it will rain soon" !
    About sums it up really.

    Donegal, North west Ireland.
    Just reading online that the hotel underground carp park flooded, the main carpark flooded destroying the water defences and cars found 5 miles downstream.
    Never saw it on this scale before.

    Bit of water gathered on the road at the bottom of the slope, no need to worry tho, we are about 50 metres up. Just a gentle drizzle at the moment.

    Such a shame really:( As I really wanted to mow the lawn today;)


    No not really!:whistle2:

    Tod will not flood Barsteward, they have spent umpteen million to ensure that it all heads down to Hebden and Mytholmroyd. Oops there again it is Sunday and the man with the key for the flood gate at Eastwood does not do Sunday so keep your wellies handy.

    Whereabouts on the Tees is that Pat? I saw a report earlier of alerts from Middleton St George to the Tees Barrage but haven't seen any photos apart from one of Lustrum Beck on the Gazette web site.
