Also out of the book of ood was the local duck pond which also flooded big time last night and the carp dad and I witnessed swimming around, what used to be, the pavement.
And now some piccies
To give you an idea of the depth of the water those bollards peeking through the top of the water are around 3ft and a bit
The ducks seemed a little puzzled as to the sudden expansion of their abode, the fish however were having a decent explore.
Interestingly this used to be the main road past the duck pond...yeah, good luck with that
Perhaps not the best day to rest on a bench to contemplate life the universe and everything.
And, as always, I suffered for my art and slightly misjudged the edge of the waterline, walking home with a lovely squelching feeling in my right trainer.
And the weather people have said there's more of the wet stuff on the way....joy
