Water, Water Everywhere

I don't think anyone in the UK could have failed to notice that over the last few weeks, the heavens have opened and large swathes of land have seemingly sunk deep beneath the waves.
 
You might not realise that a quite a lot of Somerset is actually under sea level and it's only the drainage and pumping system on the Somerset Levels which stops it flooding permanently. In times like the last few weeks though, the rains get the better of technology and this happens...

Luckily where we live hasn't received any flooding but within only a 20 minute drive you can see miles of fields underwater.
 
Hope you've all kept safe and no-one has floated away! :-)

  1. The flooding really is horrific. I really feel for all the families affected; such a horrible thing to happen (even if you know it's a risk). We're all dry here, but there were ducks swimming on the school playground the other day!

    1. It really is quite breathtaking - several of the pics were taken on a road at the back of Street; there's one bit where you come up over the brow of the hill and suddenly it's all there - floods for miles and miles and miles. I've seen it bad before, but never this bad! xx

  2. Cor blimey, it's a bit scary! Glad you've stayed dry amidst that. We've had some big Devony waves and a couple of towns nearby have seem some scary floods.
    But so far, our socks are dry.

    1. Glad you've managed to stay dry! I saw some of the Devon and Cornwall beaches on the news and the waves were, well...they'd be amazing and stunning to watch if it wasn't for all the damage they've caused! xx

Thank you very much for all your lovely comments; I do have every intention of replying but sometimes life with a baby gets in the way...
