These pumps are doing a great job!
Seems the river is currently at a level where it can handle the added masses of water without causing flooding in another area!

What a wonderful close-up, and such a good feeling to know that the water is being re-located!

What a great thing those pumps are. How long would it have taken if they waited for the water to subside on its own?
I hope all those affected get super new rooms in their homes soon.

My town escaped the flooding from the levels but it has been said that at one point part of town was only a couple inches of rain away from flooding!

What a cool shot!
This is crazy how much water is being pumped out of your area, though!
Wow!

That is just incredible to look at Dave, just incredible.

How are you faring, are you able to stay in your home and get to and from work? (one of the lucky ones?)

It's getting better everyday!
Where the above pic is, is the same place Conservative MP Owen Patterson (Environment Secretary) visited back in January when he famously turned up without any wellies!

Sure hope they run out of water to pump. What a winter you've had.

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!
