last week's film of the taxi driver, a funny thing happened.
Without mentioning a name, another taxi driver spoke to
Tina, whilst she was working at the White Lion saying, 'I
watched the film. I don't see what the problem was. I could
easily have got the minibus through that water!'
laughed. 'With all due respect, I don't think it was the
vehicle that the shopkeepers were worried about - it was
the water being pushed into their shops'. The story reminded
me of Jasper Carrott's, 'There was this Sun Reader'.
One Way systems do not apply to taxi drivers in Ross. The
crazy thing is. If he had driven the correct way out of
the car park, he would almost certainly have avoided the
flood water entirely! No further comment on that one!
flood damage in Brookend Street last Wednesday was not major,
as it has been in the past, but was still very messy and
was made worse by a power failure, which lasted until early
afternoon on Wednesday. What was good to see was the community
spirit amongst the shopkeepers. A little way along the street,
at 'Andy Pack', the power was not affected, so Andy was
boiling water, which was then transported to Jenny Smith
of 'Tea Cosy.' Emma Roberts of 'Little Chic' provided biscuits
and refreshments were served all round to those cleaning
up the mess. (And to news reporters, who had run out of
milk at home.)
are some of the photos I took whilst going out to 'get some
milk' the following day.
