    Our power went off around 8am, so the house essentials are being powered by our genny. As its a Honda and not a Kipor, its still a very peaceful Wales:BigGrin:

    You'll not be saying that in two months time.

    Unless you're under water and it happens to be frozen.

    If my house is ever under water, then you'd better move to Scaffel Pike:BigGrin:

    I don't think you've analysed the situation in any depth there Jim.

    We have English water, it gracefully trickles from the sky, gently, and then hides itself discretely.

    You, on the other hand, have Welsh Water. Now this is altogether different. It comes out of the sky like an angry Exocet missile. It hits the ground with such velocity it bounces and can quite easily travel up hill. It has an arrogant stickiness to it. It will climb your walls and stick under the gutters. It will zoom up your boots and infest your pubic hairs. It is indestructible. Visit any gents toilet in Wales and you will see the locals standing in front of the urinals wielding a cold chisel and lump hammer chipping the tenacious water from their private parts so they can urinate.

    I remember when I was young, my parents saw a cottage for sale in Snowdonia one year and seriously looked into buying it. It was one of only a couple on the mountainside, and the position was heavenly. It was just off a main-ish road, and then up a mother of all steep 2 mile driveways having to walk the last 1/4 mile...but up there was something else. The views were on an entirely different level to anything I had ever seen.

    Then they found out why....it was only habitable 4 months of the year due to it's location. The structural condition that was considered poor, wasn't due to it being untouched - it had been repaired every 3 years according to a neighbour - it was due to it being battered every winter, and being mostly buried for certain times of the year!

    They weren't looking for a holiday home, so gave it a miss - but what a place! Always remember the view from up there.

    Well, a large part of the Birmingham area seem to be quite happy with water from the Elan Valley. :Smile:

    (Useless fact of the day, that I learnt when I visited...the supply from Elan to Birmingham is entirely gravity driven...no pumps involved).
