Something like 3 million litres of water are being pumped back into the river per hour by the fire brigade where it is flooded! Where as the environment agency are pumping over a million tonnes of water back into the river.

That would be fun if we could guide water away from trouble spots and toward needy spots! Perhaps a molecular transporter would be more efficient than a pipeline, though. Hope the situation resolves soon for you Dave! Congratulations on the VIP, and the beauty you have found in this trouble.

Quoting infocus2:
Gosh! When is this going to end? I wish you could ship all that water over to California and other places that are having a drought -- don't you??

Gorgeios pastel sky and I always love a gazebo!


They have the pumps all the US needs is the pipework and problem solved!

Much calmer up North tonight, just a few minor issues this AM but it looks like the patches held. Sorry you got the surge tonight Seven estuary was worst hit I hear, keep dry Dave. Great series of images, lets see what the morrow brings.

About WurzelDave

WurzelDave

I'm a 'wurzel' who lives in South West England (UK) in the county of Somerset (next to Devon), famous for scrumpy cider, Cheddar cheese, The Wurzels (well worth going to see) & birth county of 2009 F1 world champion Jenson Button.Like the rest of the West Country, Somerset has many areas, places & landscapes worth a visit such as Glastonbury Tor & Abbey ruins, Quantock hills, West Somerset Railway, Cheddar Gorge, & Exmoor, to name but a very few.Favourite holiday destiations are Iceland (see alot of photos) & the Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi Sweden (also see photos). Still a lover of the flim camera, my first camera was an Halina 110 camera which you could buy flip flashes for! I have a Canon 3000V SLR film camera, also have some TLR cameras from the 1950's plus Canon powershot A3300 & SX150 digital cameras which are useful for close up macro shots & also makes film 'last' longer!
