Wife told me of a report about floods today. Apparently someone (employed on a high salary to do nothing practical) had said they could not fill sandbags quick enough, so some army chap(not so highly paid, but obviously more practical) said why not use traffic cones as a funnel.
Now traffic cones have a real practical use when they are not being stored on motorways.
