Flood prone

We've just received a letter from our council to say they've rezoned our street "flood prone".....



can't imagine why......





do they think maybe we haven't noticed before....

When it rains it pours! What a buzz to be tagged by you. I'll have to work on my hyperlinks. I'm a bit busy late in the week and my garden is a mess, it gets very overgrown along the front fence. Worst in the street!

Sometimes I think I could do with a flood here to give the garden a really good watering. Trouble is, if we ever had a flood here there would be several thousand houses under water before it got here. Our block is on a slope so I'm not sure how we would retain the water either. Is that your garden in the photo underwater?

no pressure googs, my list took me ages to write....
alice - yes that's our front yard with the white car, we are 3 doors down from the park in the other pic, the water used to have a natural runway across all our front yards and into the street til our neighbours built up their yard, now it stops in our drive, but it does take a pretty heavy storm to do this.
and thankgoodness we built back in the days when houses had foundations instead of those slab on ground things they built now, so have never had water in the house.
