It’s a weird old world. One day you’re on holiday, another you’re photographing the delights of Cottingham day and then the heavens open and you’re mopping up flood water and appearing on Look North and Calendar.
The rain appeared from nowhere and within reaching the bottom of my driveway, had come past the front of the house and covered the airbricks around it. I was feeling underwater for them in order to get the covers on that I had bought following the last flood in 2007. Further defensive measures to be taken I believe. To all my wonderful neighbours – a huge thank you for coming to our help with buckets and brushes.
