Pub news.

It started raining here yesterday at about 3pm. It is still raining now, 6.30pm as I type. The pub cellar is flooded, with empty barrels floating around because the dray-men wouldn't wade in to get them!

There is a pump in the cellar, but when the pub was done up they moved the switch nearer the pump. Reasonable, you may think, but no, now you have to wade through the water to get to the switch!....Brilliant!

The water shorted some circuits, so no fridges,coolers or kitchen working!

You have to feel sorry for our everso lovely soaker landlady!

Not a good idea wading through water with electricity all about . . . shocking really.

Hope you all keep safe and dry. It ruins the flowers doesn't it?

Build a boat, John G, sail away, come to the Caribbean, oops, sorry, I think they've predicted storms and hurricanes out there too.

Stay high and dry.

GG, I'll have a word with Noah!

Seems that Di needs an old fashioned, hand-cranked bilge pump, or a long hosed siphon or three. Hope the water doesn't get into the full barrels!

Like Noah, I don't care where the water gets if it doesn't get into the wine. Or, like Mickle, the beer.
