Scotland continues to be hit by a substantial down pour of rain, I decided to get in the car and take the kids out and about in Muirhouse and surrounding area to allow them to see how rain has affected us.
It was clear that our drainage system could not cope with this mammoth down pour.
Here are a collection of pictures
Muirhouse Medway Edinburgh
My daughter enjoying the flood in Muirhouse Medway
Unfortunate motorist trying to get out his driveway
Now that my daughter had walked through it, now my son had his turn
Quickly retreating as a car was about to soak him
Having had our fun on Muirhouse Medway we ventured to Silverknowes beach
As soon as we arrived we knew this was going to be fun
As the water ran down the road and over the Kerb, across the pavement it was making it’s way to beach
The kids wanted to slide down the grass
A brave driver attempts to go through the flood, it was little deep, he then decided to reverse back out
Now for the kids to show how deep the water is and how much fun it is
Kids suitable soaked we headed back to the car
Another look at the roundabout
Now we had to get back through the flooded road, unfortunately it was a little deep for my Citreon C3, so we taken to the pavement.

To top our fun morning off we visited Tesco where the fire alarm activated and all customers had to vacate the premises and stand in the rain
