Well, its that time of year again. We had the Carlisle floods, last year the OMM was flooded out, and now the rain has returned. Is this what the Mayans predicted??
Some parts of the county got 7″ of rain overnight with a further 8″ promised for tonight. The local roads are flooded, and with Aspatria on a hill, its a bit difficult to find a route out….

the road out..... about 3ft deep

Even the railway wasn’t looking good, with all trains west cancelled……..

Unfortunately, the high winds are looking like they may kill the greenhouse again, and the garden is flooded. (I never did get the pond dug.)
Our local stream is normally a 2′ wide trickle….. this is how it looks this afternoon

Anyone got a boat????
