I have been a WU member since September 2005. Now a retired teacher, enjoying my garden, writing, sketching, taking photos, and having great fun!

It is four weeks since I wrote about the floods in the UK, but they continue and are actually getting worse!
The bill for repairs will be in the BILLIONS!!
These are the flood maps, the first one I posted four weeks ago, the second one is the latest.
There are now 16 severe flood warnings - meaning "danger to life" - in place just to the south west of me, two in the Somerset Levels and 14 along the Thames in Berkshire and Surrey where the floods are the highest since the records began 60 years ago.
The Environment Agency also has more than 70 lesser flood warnings in place across the south east.
Total severe flood warnings now total 21.
February 13th - latest flood warning in the south of the country!
Armed forces personnel were in the heavily populated area on Sunday night building a 2ft-high sandbag defence to try to divert the river Thames away from homes.
Here are just a few of the many, many images that are appearing on the Internet.
The weather this week is not going to bring any relief, either!!
Another area of low pressure and its associated fronts are likely to affect the UK during Monday night and Tuesday, bringing a further spell of heavy rain and strong winds, particularly to southern areas.
Another Atlantic depression is expected to bring a spell of heavy rainfall and strong winds to parts of the UK later on Wednesday, perhaps lasting into Thursday.
The track and intensity of the depression is currently very uncertain, meaning that confidence in rainfall amounts and distribution across the UK is low. However, southern and western parts of England and Wales look most likely to see further heavy rainfall.
