350 000 people are still without electricity, thousands are homeless and/or have no drinking water. I hope that all you English zoners have a dry home, power and water.

Thanks for the concern!

Nothing has happened to me, my family or my house. I'm greatful for living on the 2nd floor at the top of a building, thats for sure.

Its sunny right now in London. The weather here is such a drama Queen. Never stops changing.

My sympathies go out to those who are in danger. It must be horrible.

My village is a little bit under water, in fact so's everywhere around where I live. I haven't been home for over a week though, so I'll see the damage tomorrow. Luckily my house is on a hill though, so it should be okay.

its all Blairs fault! j/k

this happens every 50 years or so,but now we have the al bores of this world saying its all down to the global warming rubbish.it is in fact caused by a low pressure front from sweden mixed with the cold jet stream from the med area which has pushed up from the the south and met at the south coast of england.
the queen has sent a message of support which will no doubt make everyone affected by this weather feel so much better.
as usual though,the english will just show the stiff upper lip and get on with things and leave the hyper bole to the media.
the only thing that will be affected in the long run will be the tourist trade here in the south-west as we are now into our tourist season and the tourists can not get down here due to the roads and rail lines being closed.
it notices straight away though how many places are owned by 2nd owners here as the village where i live is unusually quiet for this time of the year due to the fact that the "outsiders" cant get across the border to cornwall due to the floods

I'll have to see if I can lend you the canoe I used this weekend, Marv.
And I know you are so not disappointed about it being quiet :-P
Seriously though...I hope that everyone there is alright.

It's all our fault... all the human beings are causing this kind of problems. It's almost impossible the protect yourself for what happens in England. The amount of rain is just too much!!


I got to try al little more,

because I'm an asshole but I'm learning.

I just found out the rugby team who are on an exchange with my school are from this area.

If it's any consolation, they beat our team by 10 points in the rugby :)

Take more than a deluge of water to dampen the British spirit, don't you know.

Gad, if this had been France, the locals would have upped and offed - and good riddance to bad rubbish.

I live in a 3rd floor appartment, well away from any river and on high ground so I haven't really been affected - apart from road closures near work.

Our local tv station, Look North, used to start their news bulletins under the caption 'The Great Flood - Day....' which I thought was a bit over the top - we didn't exactly suffer Hurricane Katrina style, did we.

I don't know, Bob - having your home flooded is nothing you want to have each day. TV here says that 350 000 people still have no clean drinking water and many are homeless and/or have no electricity. If you have kids, no water and power and no dry bed to sleep in - it cannot get much worse, can it? The difference to Katrina is that help was on the way immediately and most homes can be renovated later.

This is all happening the south, right? Fuckin' English. You know how to ruin a holiday.

Like colonising India.

My best wishes to all of our English friends. Having endured 12 days without electrical power in 2005 due to damage done to the power grid in southern Florida by 2 hurricanes, i know that even if ones home doesn't sustain major damage, natural disasters can still be a major hassle.


True that. Katrina sucked.

IT'S ALL BUSH'S FAULT!
(I'm kidding.)

No, seriously, I hope all the affected people can recover quickly.


but ofcourse Jordan had the unenviable distinction of experiencing Katrina at full strength.

Hopefully, a little humor can help during the trying times over there:

'London Flooding'. Even includes a Queen reference near the end.
