I've just seen the news with films of the heavy flooding in various parts of the country, particularly Yorkshire and Lincolnshire but also Devon, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire and apparently other places are also suffering. Are all 'Catters from the badly hit areas ok?

We seem to have missed the worst so far in Leicestershire. More rain is forecast for overnight.

It makes me feel lucky that I live at the seaside - at least we have somewhere for the water to go.

It's the concrete jungles that are bearing the brunt of the flooding as the drainage systems are not designed to cope with this amount of water.

It's the worst I've ever seen in 19 years here in Beverley, East Yorks.
Roads like lakes, lots of flooded houses nearby but I'm able to report I'm still 'dry'. Thanks for concern. Helpful having a drainage ditch behind my back hedge!
My husband has just left for a job at East Midlands Airport tomorrow ...(It's 8pm UK time)and he's heading out a different route as the villages between us and the M62 are not yet clear.
Actually he's already been re-directed by the police into Hull and then out the M62. It'll be a long cautious drive. I believe the bad weather is still threatening around M18/M1 so he's going to call me later. Thank goodness for hands free mobile phones.
Looking down my road now I can see the centre line markings which were under 8" of water earlier today. It's receeding yippee.
For those who know Linda Kelly... she lives at No 25 and is dry... but no 29 is being 'pumped out now'! Some of us are so lucky. Best wishes to all.
Hazel.

Things are quite bad here on the Yorks/Notts border but so far we're OK. Had to ring British Waterways today though as the Chesterfield Canal wasn't coping and our local pound had gone over the towpath onto the road. The roads are flowing like streams.

Next door has a young Russian girl staying, pat of a party which comes every year from the Chernobyl region. (Things are still pretty bad there - breathing uncontaminated air and eating uncontaminated food for a few weeks extends their life expectancy.)

What a day for them to land. A 400-mile journey to get to the airport in Russia, then the flight to Manchester - and then crossing the Pennines on the M62, their coach pushing waves of water ahead of it. Still, they've arrived here in North East England safe and sound, but absolutely shattered. We seem to have missed the worst of the rain, but the wind's bashing the trees about a bit.

After the fiasco of a few years ago when the river Alyn got deeper and deeper and eventually flooded Mold, North Wales,we seem in pretty good shape this year, although, going to work this morning driving down the hill towards the Alyn, the rain water was spurting vertically OUT of the grids.

Well it's a lovely morning here, if a bit breezy. Sunshine and no sign of rain. It's even gone from the road outside, though as we are on the side of a hill, that happens more or less as sson as it stops raining. Don't think it rained much in the night and our rain gauge shows only .7 of an inch in the last 24 hours. Forecast 've just seen shows sunshine until Friday then rain on Saturday. Great. Just in time for us to go to a wet and soggy Royal show on Sunday.

Ascot, Wimbledon and the school fete - of course it was going to rain this weekend!

East London is still fairly dry, no sign of an ark being erected yet and definately no squirty drains.

If you can spare a thought for wildlife, leave some cat food out for the hedgehogs and other little critters - their usual food is probably halfway to Ireland by now. Make sure you fill your bird feeders too, as the rain will have washed away most of the insects and seeds they rely on at this time of year.

My tits are damp, but still bouncing around.

Minor damage so far. Garage is flooding a bit, and had to be like the boy with the finger in the dam in the house the other day... Water was pouring down the kitchen wall - blocked guttering meant water was being pushed up under the eaves and then down the walls inside. Lovely!

Caught it in time though. Have hopefully stopped the garage from flooding again by cutting a small V in to the concrete in the front of the garage to act as a guttering to rechannel the water. Which will mean that now the patio will get blocked, but better that than the garage.

We also have some rather worrying sinking bits behind a retaining wall. Gulp!

However, the Raving Maes are a modern all female (and I mean ALL female)"morris" gang who are based in Hull, Yorkshire. They'll be travelling over the Bridge to barrow tonight to dance, and then there's usually a session at the pub every Tuesday anyway..the main reason i'm going, of course...

I'm glad I don't live near Rotherham! Sounds as if three villages will be submerged if the damn they are trying to pump out gives way.

I thought the worst was over but, of course, rivers continue to rise after the rain stops. I heard on the way home this evening that there are still 150 flood warnings throughout UK. And lots more rain to come over the next few weeks.

Do not take chances. Even two or three feet of rushing water can be fatal. Every storm here some fool tries to drive through flooded roadways and others have to endanger their lives to save them...if they are lucky.
The last two storms, a Grandma tried to wade through water to get the kids home and she and the babies drowned. It's not worth it. Wait out the flooding safe and dry. Return home when it is safe.
