The Sheaf didn't burst it's banks here, no doubt in part because it did further upstream, including at Millhouses Park where there was a tragic drowning of a 14 year old boy. At the junction of Broadfield Road and Clyde Road ( http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?ll=53.35976,-1.476583&spn=0.000629,0.001628&t=h ) the level of the river was higher than the road -- the water was only contained by the flood walls.
There were quite a few people out in their customised Landrovers, seemingly driving around through the floods for kicks and a small number of people walking home.
Many other people from Sheffield will have far more interesting tales to tell about their experiences and many people are still without electricity and unable to returned to their homes due to flood damage.
