As I write, at 6.39, we are dry and likely to remain so. Chris's transport to work has vanished, but I am keeping myself amused by laughing at the Today presenters' attempts to pronounce local place names (didn't the BBC have a unit dedicated to telling presenters how things should be pronounced once upon a time?).
I'm hearing conflicting stories as we wait for high tide at 7.15. The Environment Agency are reported to be hoping that we'll get away with "seeping" as opposed to "spilling" - but the local newspaper says Haven Bridge has been breached already - which would be a bit more than "seepage". It will all look a lot better in daylight.
