more rain, more flooding


More photographs of a flooded River Thames, this time at Pangbourne in Berkshire. The river has overflowed on both sides


and the trees on the banks are standing in several feet of water.


The river is flowing fast,


so much extra water being carried downstream causing chaos on its way.

Wow, what a lot of flooding. I know that anywhere around the Thames seems to get it quite regularly, but if I lived in one of those places that flooded regularly, I'd be tearing my hair out by now. We've always been fairly lucky in not living in flood-prone areas, but I definitely sympathise with those who have as I had a lot of friends affected by the Morpeth floods in 2008.

I don't know about you, but I am definitely looking forward to a little less rain and some more spring-like weather, though maybe this year I am a wee bit too eager for spring!

Best wishes,

P.s. Would you be interested in taking part in the VP February photo challenge? I decided to challenge myself to do so and have come up with a list of prompts for each day, which I will be blogging about a little later in the month. It's not hugely taxing and you can take it as literally or as figuratively as you like. It might just make February a little more exciting!

It is sad to see this happening. Here in the mountains, we had a flood about three years ago and it was a very sad and trying time. It brought the towns together and we were able to help each other through it. Praying that the rain will stop soon...
