I took the bus into the nearby town @ 15:00.
Due to the flooding it dropped me somewhat short of my destination, and, afterwards, I had to walk into town (as the expected return bus wasn't going to pass the destination either).

As I crossed the river bridge the wind was so strong that I could hardly stay on the footpath, and the rain was heavy (and cold) so I got thoroughly soaked by the time I reached the bus station.

As it happened, the bus that I caught retraced my route (across the river) but there are no stops there for that service.

All my clothing was 'sopping' and a complete change was required.

It has stopped raining for three hours now, but we are promised a surge of floodwater @ 2 am.

I don't think I will wait up.
