A much better day today - only a few showers (though it is raining again now) and the worst of the flooding seems to have subsided. Amazing how nature moves in at great speed - saw egrets and heron trying their luck on a flooded field!
Yes, we are the village between Exmoor and the sea, and Porlock is blessed with its own microclimate, which often means the worst of the weather hits the hills rather than us. But the water has to go somewhere, hence the flood plan being in place! The stream (well, river at the moment) has had banks strengthened etc to try to prevent the flooding that happened in the past. Seems to be working (fingerscrossedsmiley).
