Localised Flooding

It’s been raining pretty hard over Ireland for the last 24 hours, and all of the news reports this morning were about localised flooding. What I didn’t expect, however, was that the flooding would extend to inside my office.

I arrived at my desk this morning, which is on the 5th floor of the building, to find the entire open-plan area where I sit cordoned off. Water was pouring from the light fittings in the ceiling onto the floor and over people’s desks. Thank goodness that we have a clean-desk policy at work, which has no doubt helped save IT equipment and documents from being lost and damaged.
