We are all OK here in Johnby. Doing a lot better than Cockermouth and Keswick.
This is the river in Cockermouth at lunch time on Thursday. Six hours later it was at least 8 foot higher.
This is a balcony over the river cocker, which is usually 2m down.
I went home before the worst of it happened; I can’t imagine how much water there must have been to get 8 foot flowing down main street.
Work wise my company was flooded, not sure exactly how badly yet. Reports vary from 6″ to 4 foot. Looking at the local news showed some aerial video of part of the factory, showing part of the carpark underwater. There were abandoned cars of which you could only see their roofs. The site is shutdown without power and I’m going to be working from home over the next week.
