The Lakes under even more water

 The latest is that Louise has indeed decided to bail out leaving the shop open in Julie's capable hands - no problems when you live in walking distance. She has been turned back by the Mountain Rescue on the A5074 Lyth Valley Road - usually the one that stays open in these conditions! Now I am playing Mr Sat Nav via the mobile directing her home on the minor roads. Fingers crossed!

Update: Made it! Two and a half hours of fun on waterlogged roads and it is still raining. Windermere (the lake) has made it up to road level now.



  1. Glad that you're all safe and sound. Time to buy a Unimog or snorkel equipped Landy.

  2. Sounds like one of those days when your just grateful that everyone you love is safe and sound at home.

    Hope the shop remains dry.

  3. Hope you're all OK in the floods!
