Just wondered how Oggies in flood hit areas - Cornwall, Devon etc are coping. Hope you are ok.
Some flooding up here and people evacuated, quiet today though.Our flood barriers go up at the first hint of heavy rain although I know that the chances of us flooding again are remote. Really feel for the people with river water ingress.

Here in Cornwall it has been very wet and windy with occasional thunder and lightning as well. Luckily I live on a hill, but all the lanes and bridleways have been awash. I have to hose the dogs down every time I take them for a walk.

A holiday maker was swept out to sea over the New Year from a dangerous beach in Porthleven. Locals know of the danger, but visitors don't realise especially if they've had a few drinks. There has also been a very sad disappearance of someone from the cliffs at Godrevy lighthouse near Hayle. It was probably a suicide, a woman of 39, an artist from St Ives. Very sad. Her body has not yet been found.

Luckily I live in the 'hilly heights of Hertfordshire' so am not subject to flooding but my garden and my containers are saturated and I fear many plants will be killed by overwatering, especially those in containers and especially if it freezesemoticon.
