Why is it that, when it rains for a couple of days straight around here everything floods and grinds to a halt. It has taken Dawn and I two and a half hours to get to work this morning. Firstly the trains weren't running because the tracks were flooded, so they were laying on buses. We decided to drive as we thought that would be quicker. Oh how wrong we were, because they decided to close Junction 34 of the M1 because the road down to Meadowhall was flooded. Great. So then we sat in a queue to get off the M1 onto the Sheffield Parkway at J33. The highlight of the journey, the parkway was actually quiet, given it was 10:30 in the morning, and work could give us a car park space. In the time it took us we could have gone to Carlisle! Cocking rain.
