Rory Dwyer, from Runnymede, in Surrey, is determined to stay put in his flooded home.
However, he decided it was time for his wife Samantha and their two daughters Charlotte and Georgiana to leave.
They used a boat to ferry the children and a few belongings to dry land, avoiding the submerged potholes in the road along the way.
