The Great Flood

Yesterday's entertainment at work was provided by a flood in the road outside the office. Apparently monitoring a flood takes three people in hi-vis jackets the entire day to stand next to it, occasionally ineffectively flapping their arms at each other. They set up a road block at the turning onto the main road, but then didn't actually stop anyone from driving through it (was deep enough to be a problem for the smaller cars at least). Perhaps they were just checking to see if anyone happened to have a really big sponge on them.

Oooh. That's what I ought to have, isn't it?

Not a flood, a big sponge.

For the next time my house floods (Gt Yarmouth, 20 miles round the coast, had a very similar flood to mine on Monday, so it's only a matter of time before it hits again).

Even a sponge cake would be nice.
