Bursting banks...

No, not the money kind, although there are a few fit to burst around I'm sure, it's riverbanks. After the winds and rain of Thursday night we checked out the house, no obvious problems, just some garden furniture blown about.We also checked out the Barrou house and some houses of friends who are back in the UK.

As we drove around we were met by swollen rivers...  

At Barrou

At Lesigny

At La Roche Posay

At Vicq sur Gartempe

At Angles sur l'Anglin

 Where the clouds disappeared for a few moments.

The rain was back by the time we got back to Le Grand Pressigny.


  1. Good grief, I had no idea it had been this bad. The last time we were chez nous all the rivers were so low, as they have been all year. Glad to hear you're all ok.

  2. Amazing photos. Hope not too much damage was done.

  3. Jean,
    Although the rivers were high they just took their usual course - this happens a few times a year - so there is almost a natural overspill area for them. As I said to Tim, storm's bark was worse than its bite!
