Rain and more rain

After very heavy rain overnight my pond has overflowed onto the patio area and parts of the garden. The discolouration is water runoff from the surrounding fields which has run through a building plot at the top of the avenue and picked up the colour from the clay subsoil. The sediment will sink to the bottom of the pond  and the water will clear again if the land dries out, but I've just heard the local weather focast and there could be up to 10 inches of rain in the next 2 days.

  1. My god, dad Ive never seen it flood that much!!! Ive seen the ponds join together but not go onto the patio.

    Also I looked on the net for info on the rescue on pendle. It was a lady that had collapsed and she was stretchered down to the ambulances at the bottom of the hill.

    Speak soon
