Bridport Floods July 2012

video

Crazy weekend.  Major flooding in Bridport at the weekend which our house was lucky enough to avoid, but some friends of ours were not so fortunate.  The water levels just kept on going up throughout the day on Saturday, and by the afternoon I was round at my mum's, barricading her door with anything we could find.  The water got within 5 yards of her door before it started to subside... phew!

The video above is the way we walk to school.  The playing fields were a lake!

That's not me talking by the way but a jolly passer by.  In fact everyone was strangely jolly, considering the situation.
