    Oh my goodness Catherine, I presume that's just ground saturation rather than flooding from a stream?

    No stream anywhere near - and it's getting significantly worse!

    Rain keeps falling heavily.... and the roads in and out of town are awash. It's the clay soil which doesn't drain easily. Hard to imagine how dry and cracked it can become in summer!

    This is our neighbour's garden just now, at lunchtime. The whole of his garden is under water;

    Have just seen this on BBC News;

    BBC News - Heavy rain causes flooding in parts of UK

    So maybe Santa will have a problem landing this year!

    Not as bad here, there's a lot of road flooding though.
