Salmon Fishing Scotland 2008 January Flood.

Salmon Fishing Scotland 2008 January Flood.

Video of the 17 foot or 5.5 meter flood at Stanley,Perthshire,Scotland on the river Tay.
This was an amusing comment posted which relates to the flooding.
It had been raining for days and days. The waters rose so high that one man was forced to climb onto the roof of his house.
As the waters rose higher, a man in a rowboat appeared, and told him to get in. “No,” replied the man on the roof. “I have faith in the Lord; the Lord will save me.” So the man in the rowboat went away. The man on the roof prayed for God to save him.
The waters rose higher and higher, and suddenly a speedboat appeared. “Climb in!” shouted a man in the boat. “No,” replied the man on the roof. “I have faith in the Lord; the Lord will save me.” So the man in the speedboat went away. The man on the roof prayed for God to save him.
The waters continued to rise. A helicopter appeared and over the loudspeaker, the pilot announced he would lower a rope to the man on the roof. “No,” replied the man on the roof. “I have faith in the Lord; the Lord will save me.” So the helicopter went away. The man on the roof prayed for God to save him.
The waters rose higher and higher, and eventually they rose so high that the man on the roof was washed away, and alas, the poor man drowned.
Upon arriving in heaven, the man marched straight over to God. “Heavenly Father,” he said, “I had faith in you… I prayed to you to save me, and yet you did nothing. Why?” God gave him a puzzled look, and replied “I sent you two boats and a helicopter, what more did you expect?”

I assume the some of the "Mill" houses are suffering water intrusion?

The Mill houses were all right but i bet a few were quite concerned!
No boats have been out yet as the water is still at 9feet. There is more snow forecast so it could all happen again.
