Fingers crossed
Every time Fore Street floods some wag gets a tender out to row up the street - We even made onto Sky news - my sister got in touch from Zimbabwe to see if we had floated away!

Lymington featured heavily on the BBC local last night and everyone looking at this mornings tide. Conditions are not as bad as forecast-so far!

This is doing the rounds today on social media networks, shows a family at Mullion Cove Cornwall (Lizard Peninsular) behind the sea wall, also shows them getting soaked but luckily not being swept down beneath the railings or between the gaps in railings.

I know this area very well and they would be lucky to survive had the worst occured

The second one is the sea state at Porthleven between Penzance and The Lizard. This is where a man lost his life New Years eve paddling!

I am sure as the next few days progress we will all see similar stupidity

I have been to Mullion harbour many times and know that a few people have lost their lives over the years for being foolish enough to walk along the harbour wall during storms.

Nasty water up the Itchen near the Southampton dry stack today! Also a pic of a tug trying to lower the sea level in Southampton Water - not convinced it will work!
