UK under water: Yesterday morning, the lake at the Sanger centre had grown considerably. By lunchtime, one of the overflow car parks was flooded, and in the middle of the afternoon, a message went round saying that one of the transformer rooms was threatened. The network was taken down, and large parts are still missing (well, actually maybe not such large parts, but since we can't access some vital NFS servers...). Fortunately, there's power for my laptop and a connection to the outside world.

All quite irritating, since it means I don't stand much chance of accessing a database I'm supposed to be working with. But I guess it's a chance to catch up with e-mail and some coding loose ends.

PS. Rumour has it that a small island has just reappeared in the middle of the (still swolen) lake. Maybe things are getting back to normal.
