Our local pub has flooded again, just after they had the rooms replastered as a result of the last floods. Its so lovely in the summer, the River Severn rushing by, relentlessly, hiding the killer currents until they manifest themselves when a drunk tries to swim across on a summer’s evening. Sad and true.

It rose about 6 inches in the 2 hours I was there, and it wasn’t raining, a fiesta submerged with only the roof showing now, I couldn’t get a photo, it would be like photographing an accident on the motorway, a nightmare.



  1. I expect it takes money and effort to design flood areas and water diversions. I once stood and watched in amazement the cricket pitch in Worcester flood and that was in the 70s.
    Easy to say I know:
    I stayed in a holiday site chalet in Corsica, it rained all night, in the morning I discovered why the chalets were built four feet above the ground. We had to wade waist deep to higher ground. it took 24hrs to clear – and then it was as if it never was.
    Stay warm and dry.

  2. Thanks, we’ll be ok, just sad to see the folk that won’t. We were those people in 2007, I was recognised in the supermarket from my TV interviews of woe. I just think the country should be able to sort this, we don’t all need to make billions, a rich country looks after its population
