    Default The Lovely Weather!

    Though most here will have experienced the recent weather,themselves,just thought I'd post this pic' of what confronted me,on my way home yesterday! It's at the junction of Crosby rd.north, and Knowsley rd.(by the "Caradoc") By the time I got there,there were another 3 cars stuck in the water,so I took a right!

    Blame the Government, it's their fault.

    It's shocking - this weather is awful to say the least. (Fancy coming home from hols to this!)

    It was interesting listening to someone on the radio talking about the various reasons why we are having these floods more and more each year. One of the theories is that there are fewer and fewer places where water can drain away, ie, the trend for people paving over their gardens, more and more new housing being built where fields used to be, huge supermarkets concreting over huge areas and adding huge car parks. hence fewer places for water to seep away into the ground.
    A man came on the phone-ins saying something about since the mines had closed flooding has become worse and water levels have risen - but I didn't catch what he said about the mines and what the reasons were.

    OR - Is it actually climate change (note they've changed it from Global warming)

    Has it p1ssed down like this in previous Julys?

    I do remember ringing home from my hols in August about 3 years ago for family to say Anfield was flooded due to bad rain.
