When we woke up today it was raining really heavily. Thunder rolled across the skies and when I looked out the window, I saw that it was really dark. But when I got downstairs a nasty surprise was waiting for me.
Water was seeping through the glass sliding door and also through the wooden door. I hurriedly woke Repin and together we rolled the carpet and I carried some of the chairs to the dining room. By 7.30 am the water had risen to about 6in. Nothing to do but wait. The rain was still pouring from the sky and if it didnt stop anytime soon the water level is definitely going to rise. At the patio I could see some of my flower pots under water so I hurriedly transferred them to a higher spot. My poor roses looked drenched.
