Somebody ring Noah

We might have a job for him. …

What a week – rain, rain , and more rain. :down: Today was the worst, it absolutely bucketed down all day.

I had to go to town, I'd been putting it off all week. While the roads were pretty wet they didn't seem particularly bad, I've seen worse. I made it to town OK and it did eventually easy off. When I headed home though I got stopped by the fire brigade. My route home, and all the other routes were flooded out. :no:

Nothing to do but go back into town and wait for it to clear. 😦 They said it would be 2-3 hours so I called over to my aunt. She was on her way out to supper with her daughter who was visiting from England, but said I could stay as long as I liked. So I had a cup of tea :coffee: upgraded her anti-virus, and installed a few other updates while I waited. :wait:

By the time I had all that done, it was 4 hours later so I headed out again. The road was open :hat: but you could see where the flood had left muck and stones on the road. Further on I met fog 🙄 and some more flooding :irked: but nothing that was impassable.

I hope the weather improves for the trick-or-treaters tomorrow.

  1. When I lived in Texas, I was surprised at the many roads that crossed creeks underwater. These were called "low water crossings". The water wasn't deep, and there actually was a road under there, but as a Northerner, the whole thing struck me as being very weird.Of course when there was a storm like you described, the crossings were no longer safe. 😦

  2. In Ireland I guess there were plenty of fords, if the names are anything to go by. Waterford, Wexford, Freshford, Urlingford, Foxford etc. And if I remember right, the Irish word for ford is Bhuiríos, or Borris, which is in Carlow. We also have Borris-in-Ossory, Two-Mile Borris, and Borrisokane.

  4. At least they have an umbrella.It rained in the night. Mam said that the roads were bad again this morning. And the forecast is for more rain all week :down:

  5. 'Fraid not, it's raining again. Around here they're only wrong when the forecast is good. 😉

  6. I feel your pain, Mickey. :down: I'm soooo sick of the rain already…and I'm sure it's not even as bad here as it is there.

  7. Raining again Karen, forecast is warning of gales and flooding. :down::star: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ :star:Thanks 🙂

  8. I've been keeping a rain journal. I started it at the beginning of October. I want to mark down every day it rains so that when the rain finally leaves, I can count up the days and know exactly how much it really rains here. :D:sst: I have way too much free time.

  9. Ah sure, it's not so bad, as long as you're inside and don't have to go anywhere.Mam cancelled a trip into town this evening because she was worried about making it home again.

  10. I'm glad you've got that kind of attitude about it. I'm far less…uh, tolerant. :left: The gloom really gets to me.Good thing she cancelled! :up:

  11. Oh it gets to me too 😦 around February I get completely fed up with the wet and the cold and the dark.

  12. :awww: I think people like us need free summer homes in sunny areas! Now I just need to find a donor. :p

  13. There's folks here who escape to the sun during summer too. After my trip to Spain I can see the appeal.
