Near Sawrey

Monday, July 31, 2006

What a day, we had some really heavy showers this afternoon and we always keep an eye on the drains, at about 2pm we noticed that all of a sudden the drains were not taking the rainwater,we blocked the doors and tried to ring the council, a crazy situation occurred, I was on one line to the council who said it was not their responsibility and Denis was on the other line to United Utilities and they said it was not their problem, both parties suggested we ring the other.

Eventually the water company came out cleaned up the mess but left without trying to investigate the cause,of course the rain returns tonight and the problem is back, we are lucky down the lane opposite they are lower than us and having twice the problem.

As I write this we are awaiting the experts to arrive and the rain is pouring down.
