Floods

Oh joy.. it's that time again. The flood warnings are out and it's quite scary!
Last summer I was living in Nottingham but now I'm at uni down in Gloucestershire where flooding has already started. Joys.

Will it be as bad as the summer though?
Thankfully I'm on the fourth floor of my uni accommodation so I should be okay! If I'm not, something bad will have happened!

I'll stop babbling now!



And you say I only hear what I want to.

I'm so lucky living in the North East, we never get any floods.
They look realli bad again.



Well content loves the silence, It thrives in the dark,
With fine winding tendrils, That strangle the heart,
They say that promises sweeten the blow, But I don't need them,
No, I don't need them...

Sheffield still has damage from the last floods. annoying for me though as Floods were really bad here so going to college and work was a nightmare.

Meadowhall ok? I am going tomorrow and I still not forgiven them for flooding and closing last time!
Plus the walls surrounding the river were knocked down in the last flood. Which means they got even less protection this time around, you would have thought they would have done something about it!

I'm glad I live at the top of a hill. And the river is at the bottom of it. The nearest water to me is a duck pond a couple of streets away. And thats not a proper pond, its from water draining off the roads.

Doctor Foster went to Gloucester
In a shower of rain,
He stepped in a puddle,
Right up to his middle,
And never went there again.

Pretty fitting, if you ask me!

Let's hope the floods don't get too bad, particularly up Gloucestershire way, like they did last time.

There are bad patches here, and the rivers are really swollen, but ho hum. Not drowned yet! x



I see it in your eyes
You'll be alright

Yup. Luckily my house was unaffected by my friend just down the roads house flooded compeletly. :[

My dad and stepmum literally had to swim home.
it took my dad 6 hours to get home 'cuz he was stuck in traffic.

I havent seen any flood warnings for Sheffield yet, so maybe we'll be okay?
*fingers crossed*

It isn't flood season here (US) yet. I live on a hill, but we are moving to a flatter street so we are a teensy concerned. In my area, our basements/cellers are prone to leaking and being damp and dank because of the water run off.
Also, courtesy of our city being established on a bunch of large hills and valleys combined with our history of coal (later steel) production, whole yards and houses have slid away each year when the soil gets too saturated and slips. Yay gravity!

Despite all this, I absolutely love rain and don't mind the poor drainage in streets because it makes everything fun. I would totally canoe the streets if it got high enough. You should too.
