No rain today...almost 70 degrees with sunshine! Top down on the car to get the groceries earlier, but it's down to the fifties now and the back porch heater is burning. Wimpy, huh?

Thanks PF! I am driving to work each day with the water getting higher on each side and wondering (with the rain) when I won't be able to get across. I don't live anywhere near a river but the water table has reached saturation point and farmers are moving cattle to very weird spots. Where I work is very high up, but where I live I have friends who lost electricity over the weekend.

I have plenty of candles and matches though!

Saw video of the news reports on TV yesterday and thought immediately of you and our other Brit posters. So glad to see you have your nose and your keyboard above water. Too bad you can't send some of your rain to CA where Kayelle and others are parched. Stay safe...and keep those matches stored up high.

Time to pack a suitcase and put it in the car in case you get stranded at work. Clean clothes and toiletries!

Oh dear, Katy! The whole world is sharing all this nasty weather. Stay safe!

We currently have 25F, and apparently are expecting more rotten weather tomorrow, a mix of snow and freezing rain. Though as cold as it is, I'm not sure how much rain will get in there.

It can't go on much longer!

I live in an upstairs flat so I keep thinking that if flooding hits "downstairs" it won't affect me.... but of course the electricity will go out way before the water reaches me...

Honestly, it hasn't got that bad here. Yet. (Across town people were evacuated last week).

But, it's a big town!

Snowing like crazy here, almost a whiteout. All the schools are closed due to President's Day. DH's workplace is having pizza delivered in.

Woke up this morning to snow. By noon, puddles everywhere. High of 40F. It turned out to be a nice sunny day.
