So what a crazy day today was for weather. Torrential rain from 7am until 2pm, lots of flooding, people broken down and crashed by the side of the road. Main roads were a nightmare so had to take the back ones which were very interesting in places! Streams forced their way across lanes as they turned into rivers and fields turned into lakes. Kat had quite a struggle getting back from Richmond on the train – she got as far as Reading where I had to find a route to her. As the line to Newbury was completely closed due to flooding. A4 was completely grid-locked so had to go through the villages.
