Water Water Everywhere!

It's the most fabulous day today!!! Sunshine, blue sky - wonderful! However on Sunday we had rain of Biblical proportions, and so it came as no surprise when the Severn burst it's banks. I went to work last night with my camera and took these photos on my way home.

On this photo you can make out the natural riverbank on the left and see boats still moored there.

It's difficult on here to show the extent of the floodwater. It extends for many miles of course on the river's length, and for at least a mile and a half, the width of the road, although fields are flooded on the other side of the road too.

Flooding in the city centre is once again causing disruption and inconvenience. And it is the third time since Christmas that this has happened.

Those are the Malvern Hills in the background - home!!! :) It's an eleven mile journey from home to work, and on mornings like this, despite nose-to-tail traffic, it's a lovely drive home.

Amazing photos, it's a while since we've seen the Malvern Hills from the M5 as we motor down to Cornwall! Such a lovely part of the country. Must be dreadful if you're in a property that keeps being flooded though!
