Thank goodness the flood never reached us. The only thing that happened was that we had a few inches of water in our cellar and the park got closed off due to a potentially toxic oil leak. So we moved all our things back downstairs and decided that when we buy our next house we are going to make sure it’s not on a flood plain.
One good thing about the flood was that it invoked a sense of community spirit – I’ve never spoken to so many people from our street before.
