After nearly a week of continual rain, the Elwy Valley at LlanfairTalhaearn is doing its' job as a flood plain. The roads are blocked from here to everywhere, and not even the ambulance can get through. Fire Brigade, Police and Highways men (N.B. not Highwaymen) have been out all morning, and now the main road is officially closed. Several houses and the village carparks are under feet of water despite the best efforts of four Fire Appliances, and, although the Community Centre is protected by a good stone wall, the water is beginning to percolate up through the earth into the enclosure. So, unsurprisingly, our afternoon meeting has been cancelled. AC.
