Nearly got trapped by Ludlow today where there was dire flooding. Main roads were closed with muppets cars blocking them after they'd tried to go through 3' of water and on trying to head north through back lanes found the town was virtually an island. I was really pissed off with the speed at which some tossers were driving and at one point went nose to nose with a silly bitch who tried driving at me when I was already nearly through one deep stretch where the only safe course was straddling where the white line may have been. Twunt thought she'd do the same and only stopped a couple of feet from my bumper before seemingly realising I was there and backed up(I did have headlights on) and was not going anywhere as there were several vehicles behind me.
I've not seen it this bad for many years and more rain is due.
Quiet calm and dry here except for a heavy hailstorm this afternoon.Rivers very high but staying in the water meadows.Be able to sleep easy for first time in 3 days.The devastation all round is very bad .Much highway infrastructure undermined and destroyed.
