Hi people,

I just wondered if Ludlow is still in the 'safe' area? Not sure if Shropshire is in the wet zone at the mo'. A lot of 'shires' are so I've heard in the news.
I also wonder how Gordon (& co) is doing. Keeping it dry out there??

What's it with all the rain, eh?

For everyone out there in trouble: hang on and don't give up!
As long as it's material damage things are oversee-able, I guess.
Keep up the spirit.

The new site at Case Mill was near a river so may have been in danger. The original site above V. Wine was in more danger of delivery lorries clipping it as they squeezed through the streets.

Wow. Wasn't Paul Sumner err, I mean Dominic Handy from Much Wenlock?

Hopefully the "Newsfield archive" over at Roger & Oli's place won't flood, eh? Brrr. :?

[Papillon] I'm still here, you bastards! [/Papillon].

No floods here. Well, actually, the entire town centre was flooded, and we couldn't get into Oxford because that was flooded, and the surrounding countryside was flooded, too; but not us. Oh no. We're too high up for floods. The one bit of excitement in the past 20 years and we don't get even a sniff of the action!

The world is quite pretty underwater, though.

Bah.

One of the advantages of being tall. Or wearing stilts. Or having a house on stilts.

I climb on the shelves and watch the water flow slowly by.

But only when no one's watching.

Getting that Windwaker feelin' eh?
Whatever you do Gordon, don't jump in the water or the Thames will overflow and everybody will drown.

Btw, I'm off, holiday!
Looking for something high and dry though. ;)
