No we have not been deluged. We are cut off only so far as not wanting to drive through about 6 inches of water in case we break the cars, otherwise we have been fortunate. The bad flooding has been in the city centre and we feel sorry for the people who live near the Foss as normally it is protected by a big gate thing. This time that had to open the gate so water from the Ouse (the big river in York) flowed into the Foss (the little one) – result slightly less damage to those near the Ouse but very bad for those near the Foss. Poor them. Our stream which is normally about 3 foot wide and 6 inches deep is about 100 yards wide and 6 feet deep. See above – Exciting for us, miserable for others.
