Should I stay or should I go now?
If I go it will be trouble
If I stay it will be double
Oh I don’t really know,
Should I stay or should I go?
It’s 3-00pm Thursday, I’ve just got back from seeing my Mum, which was a risk but I needed to make sure she won’t be discharged until the situation is clearer. While I was there Social Services were ringing to ask them not to discharge her, so she is OK.
On my way there I had to drive through about 4 inches of water at ‘Sunnymeads’, and I was worried I wouldn’t get through on the way back. I didn’t do the shopping – no point if the electrics go. I’ll eat tins and left overs.
Anyway I have two big fat F@#k Off Cuban Cigars which I was saving for a couple of approaching milestones in my illness and there are a couple of special bottles to be got through. I’m making my last stand here.
There wasn’t much of a choice anyway – run away or stay and salvage what I can. If I go I can't come back, the gas and Electricity would stay on and probably everything would be destroyed.
If I stay I won't be able to leave as the roads are cut, but I can sort things out.
This is Wraysbury Village green – remember the Cricket?
This is the road back, only one of two in or out, gulp.
I made it and drove down to the river but was turned back: many of the roads near the river have gone and are now shut.
The next 8 to 12 hours are crucial and I’m sticking it outThink Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
1548: phone call from the Environment Agency - The Colne is flooding at Colnebrook.
That's not good.
