I'm going to drown!
« on: 19/07/2007 23:23:24 »
From The Times online:-

Bristol, the Cotswolds and the M4-M5 corridor are likely to experience the worst of the rain this morning before the storms move towards Birmingham and some parts of the South East by late afternoon, according to the Met Office.

I live a stone's throw from the Cotswolds and half-hour's drive from Birmingham :(

Rain update.

It's been raining hard constantly most of the night & all morning. At Upton (4 miles from here) they had 1" of rain in 20 minutes. When Sandra got back from taking Calvin to school she said the road from here to Bloxham (Bloxham is only 1 mile away) was getting flooded already.

You remember those photos I posted a couple of weeks back of the flooded fields? Well, we drove past there at about 11:30am and the water level of the river was roughly 6" below the banks. We came back at 12 and it was just starting to overflow. That means it has risen 6" in 30 minutes - and it's still raining hard. Methinks it'll be a lake again before much longer.

Wow Doc.

How much rain did you get before this happened? Because if the ground was already wet it wouldn't be that bad right? You don't want a Flash Flood. That would drown you for sure. We might have got a total of 2 inches and we normally get 10. LoL. They are expecting a 100% loss of corn this year. So no corn on the cob for anyone! LoL.

Schools here closed early today as there was a danger of flooding. However, it hasn't materialised after all. The rain has almost stopped before things got too bad.

It seems that most of the rain fell on the far side of the Cotswolds as to the west & north west of here it was a lot worse.
