    To all the UK members who are being affected by the flooding caused by the recent heavy rains, I just want to send my prayers and best wishes for a complete and speedy recovery to all. :hug: :hug: :hug:
    Steve, please be careful. :)

    Well I am a few moments walk away from the Thames but thankfully that walk is down hill, so no flooding in this area, except that is for a street higher up of course that had a severe case of blocked drains :goofer: Some parts of the country though realy have had a bad time with a number of deaths and no let up in the rain as yet.

    Play it safe Steve, and try and remember, 'Never test the depth of the water with both feet at the same time.':thumb:

    That is how an estuary cleanses itself. If you don't want your house to be flooded then don't build it below the 100 year flood plain!
