    Are all you Guys in Northern parts safe and dry? After watching the terrible weather news, we wondered if you were all OK! :-ss

    We live at the top of a sloping road so we have a new river near the front door.

    A whole street a mile away was evacuated last night. The boats in the canal we look at are rising and rising.

    Oh dear, Snoops, that sounds too close for comfort :-ss Let's hope you don't get the run off coming down from the hills aswell, because it is all around Cumbria, that means that Gill maybe flooded out too. :-s

    But they probably don't build on flood plains over there like they do in the UK.

    Its great fun, we go for a picinic around the island, only need a foot of water to launch, or put a course out and race around it, jump waves, retrieve kit or students :D , pull towables and sometimes the lads wakeboard or ski behind it (not much wake being a speed/rescue boat but good enough) and will fold down for the back of a van if needed, although we keep it inflated and on its own trailer, 2.5 G on a turn, faster than the zeddies :D and turns on a sixpence

    I have to admit that my Profile is incorrect, I do not live in a hole in the ground (thankfully), but I live on a hill so I have not been washed away just yet.
