Thanks. I was well away form the badly hit areas, although Bridgwater was on flood warning at one point because the high tide coincided with the heavy rain, so they had RNLI teams up from Cornwall that specialised in flooding. Considering Cornwall was also badly hit, they must have been very concerned. It was a hairy drive home from work on the 21st though, as I was working late and ended up driving in the heaviest part of the rain and had to make a decision based on poor travel information, which route to take. I think I took the wrong option in the end and was lucky I wasn't an hour later, as the fire brigade were called out to deal with the floods I had to drive through. They were probably almost knee deep at the time for about 50 metres; I certainly didn't feel comfortable, but at least it was stationary water and the car in front of me got through ok. It often floods in that area, but nowhere near as bad as that night. The other options were the motorway, which had reports of flooding and another A road, which was partially flooded the night before. So it came down to driving through river water or stream water and I chose the stream.
