The town is a mess - it is going to take ages to get the streets up back to normal - huge areas have been flooded - the roads are damaged - and the river kent is a raging torrent.
I don't know if I will be able to get into town tomorrow - the estate is still cut off. Ben should be open - he is just round the corner anyway.
I am so glad I nagged and nagged and got the roof covered - otherwise I would not have a shop now. Seriously I would be out of business - the insurance would have covered any damages as it is an ongoing maintenance problem - and I am just not strong enough to start all over again this year!
The forecast for the coming week is for more rain - so we are just going to have to muddle along together and do the best we can.
I may or may not be open tomorrow - I will keep updating my facebook pages when I know what's happening.
Just stay safe everyone
