So this morning we woke to that all too familiar sound - rain!
Nothing too unusual, given it is the wettest Summer on record but this was torrential - a cloud burst over Shepton Mallet that dumped 30mm of rain in just 30 minutes over a very localised area.
The road just up from our house was flooded so we had to do a 3 point turn and head through town on the school run this morning. I haven't seen rain like it. Although just 10 minutes up the road it was wet but nothing out of the ordinary.
I headed back towards Shepton after dropping the children at school and made my way towards Wells, as I had an appointment with a customer at 10am, to hand over a personalised print but I had to abandon my attempts after an hour and 2 different journeys, as the roads were flooded and impassible. Local schools have been flooded homes and businesses in Croscombe affected - terrible.
Jeff took these pictures of the local park which is flooded - crazy weather for July.
2 hours later and the road is improved and passable and.....
the SUN is shining as if nothing has happened!
