This was Thursday afternoon, we had a torrential rain storm. The pictures are taken from the window so do not show clear images. We were very lucky, the water was about an inch below the front door step. Nearby homes were flooded and people were stranded in cars for hours.
My youngest son was bitterly disapointed as it was his school prom. Months of planning, dinner suit organised and a hired limousine to travel in. We battled through the traffic and flooded roads to get to the boys meeting place, off they set and unfortunately they had a message to say it had been cancelled due to the weather. By this time the sun was out and the weather was nice all evening. I feel for the families who have struggled to provide their child with what they probably could not afford. I really think that the prom idea is a lot of pressure for a lot of people, whats wrong with a school disco to celebrate leaving school?
