Drip, drip, squirt

The rain today has been rather excessive at times again.

The downpipe on the patio used to have a water butt connected into it, and for a few years, the Gaffer tape repair has held well.

The rain was so heavy, the soakaway under the drainpipe could not take it and the entire pipe filled with water.

Not only was the water spilling out of the top of the pipe at roof level, but it also burst through the tape and sprayed onto the patio.

Good job it was not hail or we may have been shot blasted!
