    It was bad in Shropshire about a month back, fine today though

    Chorlton brook this morning – the water is normally ~20 ft lower than the path that’s underwater on the far side there…

    Mersey was looking pretty lively, and that’s after the flood gates were opened at 1am

    @sharkatack – I hope there’s a cycle lane under all that water #cyclingonthepavement! 😉

    Hope people aren’t suffering too much, we’ve had about as much rain as the flats of Cambridge can take this week, much more and I’ll need a bike/canoe hybrid for work!

    No flooding here, quite impressive thunder and lightning and drizzle. It’s still 29C though at 22:38

    … and it is raining again in Worksop.

    Seen one idiot thinking his car is a submarine this morning and trying to go under Kilton Hill Bridge. Of course he get stuck…

    Center of Rotherham, next to post office had about 80-100cm of water this morning, but apart of that more-less ok. Not sure how it is like further afield or closer to canal/Don.

    Heard some people get stuck overnight in Medowhell…

    Cheers!

    JCB For Sale in Ambergate – good condition, bit of water in the electrics!…

    Raining at present here in Darley Dale, but the river Derwent isn’t expected to peak till later. There has been some discussion of water being released from Ladybower and Derwent last night due to the pressure up there. Was sad to realise that the coastguard helicopter that was searching up the valley before lunch was looking to recover the glass that got swept away at Rowsley in the early hours.

    pretty bad in lincs, plenty of roads closed and idiots still trying to get through and need rescuing….

    out of interest, is there an up-to-date site for road closures anywhere? one of my lads and his mate and girlfriends are flying from birmingham airport in the morning, so A46/A453/A42/M42 to airport parking. any sites for them to look at for closures/re-routing etc?

    cheers

    @sharkatack – I hope there’s a cycle lane under all that water #cyclingonthepavement!

    There is, and luckily it’s about 18 inches higher than the road otherwise he’d be swimming.

    It’s weird in Sheffield tonight. I just got home from work in 9 minutes! Wish everyone would stay home more often.

    Watch out cycling (and walking) through dirty water you can see the bottom through, because it’s not unheard of for the rising waters to lift manholes covers………

    Yeah that happened on the a57 snake pass yesterday evening. Several cars got flats on raised drain covers

    Sadexpunk – I’ve been using the county council website to check road closures here in Derbyshire.

    AA/RAC may have a wider list.

    No flooding here but rivers & brooks are high. The team has been very busy clearing trash screens, culverts and bridge holes to keep water flowing freely.

    Due to years of tory cuts we dont have any flooding up here on Merseyside, just a few damp patches, from mps going to loose their well paid so called jobs in Decemebr

    South Downs near me, courtesy if you believe the local news, of the EA cutting back and not dredging the river mouth

    The temerity of them. How dare they not spend public money on protecting an artificially created floodplain with no-one on it from flooding.

    Sigh.

    I will say, having just got back from the P&H in Litlington that the flooded roads seem to have pretty much halved their usual Friday evening business and Alfriston is pretty dead apart from lots of 4×4 response and EA vehicles so there is some indirect effect on people here.  That and all the low lying homes in Alfriston.

    I rode over Snake Pass earlier this evening. All passable with a bit of care – actually I reckon it was easier by bike than car.

    Not been too bad in this corner of East Northants. Just a few small puddles on the trails in the local woods.

    Off out to brave it this morning. Hopefully the roads around derby have improved….

    They are tough old beasts, might not be an ex-excavator with bit of careful lubrication! (oe-err missus)

    Well I’ve spent the day removing flooring and skirtings, mopping out and getting the dehumidifiers going in one house. Same again tomorrow in the other, if it’s moat has drained. We still don’t have flowing drains and likely won’t until the Don drops a few feet. We had a laugh when my tenant compared it to the Titanic on Look North last night though.

    @h4muf bet Chris and Kev are extra chirpy on monday morning! Was that a duck I saw outside the hurt arms on the aerial photo? Was it helping out? Did the vintage event go ahead today?

    They’ll both be in a bad mood in the morning!
