Greetings Space Cadets, the floods may be over but here in forgotten Cumbria we are still living dealing with the effects of Storm Desmond. You have seen my Video of the floods at our home and you have seen the Photos, and my Chickens playing in the receding waters but today I thought I would share the makeshift defences I built to protect the house in what I call:
It's an ingenious solution to a problem that should never have existed in the first place.

The volume of water that passed over our home could not be stopped but I could be diverted so take a look at my dams and diversions part modelled from a document I watched in the 90s where an inventor was pitted again the British army to hold back a flood, the Army and their sandbag walls lost to metal frame with a plastic sheet that held by about 9 sandbags, and from what I observed the weight of the water created the seal, and in the tiny spot where it leaked you tossed a sand bag over into the water and it resealed whereas at the army barrier waster was flowing through as if it wasn’t there.
You can see what else I am up to in my YouTube channel. You can also find me on Twitter and Facebook so drop by and say Hi, :p Transparent-Aluminium.net
