Rain, too bad about that flooding--looks extreme! How fast does it disappear?[when it stops raining, that is]
Hi Inkadog, it drains away quite quickly when it stops raining but the ground stay soft for weeks unless we get some sunshine which there is a decided lack of at the moment.
Sunshine and showers today but thankfully the Water Board have been and cleared a blockage, it seems that 3 drains were blocked that's why mine wouldn't empty, they water blasted it and 2 tennis balls an iron bar and big chunks of cardboard later it's free, the chap said judging by the colour of the muck that came out of the drain it had been blocked for some considerable time, so I know I shouldn't wish for more heavy rain but I just want to see it all disappear down the drain.
