Flood warning!

I got a letter through the post today (or at some point since last time I checked my post) from the Environment Agency. They wanted to let me know that my property is at risk of flooding. Well, gosh. It's a good job that they warned me, because I'd never have thought that a flood could ever reach up here to my fourth-floor (fifth-floor by US numbering) flat.

(Of course, given that I live maybe 30 yards from a fairly large river and that they probably just work off postcodes for these things, it's hardly surprising that I was included in their mailing. Amusing, yes; surprising, no.)

Perhaps they're waning you so you can make space for all the people on the floos below who are going to need somewhere to cash when they get flooded out. :o)

How is it worded? Are you at risk of flooding, or at risk from flooding? Arguably the latter is correct, since flooding will put you at risk of your electricity, sewerage etc. packing in as well as having difficulty leaving your block of flats :)

Fair point. And they did, indeed, say "from".

Totally unrelated, but I love your icon. Where did that come from?

What emmavescence said. From this entry in fact. And my moodtheme also came from the same community.

And before that, they came from the Sandman series of comics by Neil Gaiman, which I don't know whether you're familiar with or not, but are well worth reading if you aren't.
