40 days and nights?….

Up in Newcastle this weekend and didn’t see much of the news/newspapers, but became aware of the unprecedented flooding in deepest, darkest Gloucestershire. I sent Tombob a text message enquiring whether he had floated away (or similar) but no response – so I assume that all is well with him. Checked in with GC this morning and found that she was OK, but Aunty J only narrowly escaped flooding (the flood water came to within six houses of her house) but has no water and no electricity as they have been affected by the sub-station going down. GW is OK. Both are filling water bottles in case the water supply goes down.
T- Mr&Mrs at church went to a wedding in Gloucester at the weekend, and should have been attending a reception in Tewkesbury, but instead ended up being relocated to Cheltenham (Tewkesbury has been badly affected as it is near the junction of the River Avon and the River Severn).
More rain and flooding is expected and people are comparing it with the flooding of 1947. GW doesn’t remember anything this bad (and is slightly over 80)…
