We've been hit bad here yesterday. Went to a village called Llanberis today it's one of the ones shown on the news yesterday and although there was no water there today the streets were cover in mud. All the mountain streams just poured down and flooded the place and dumped branches, mud and stones everywhere.

One day? Try more like a couple of hours it just went crazy ohmy.gif . This village lies at the foot of the highest mountain in the area, so when it rained the streams just overflowed and poured down into the village. I think a lot of drinage channels got blocked with branches and dead leaves that have fallen in autumn so there was nowhere for the water to go.

blink.gif gladly that haven't happened in Denmark, well I can't know that for sure, haven't watched the news. So maybe it happened some place else, but it definitely didn't happen in the city where I live tongue.gif

Rock on!

I"ve been seeing this on BBC America news and it's just NUTS. Looks like most of Southern England is under water. All the "Anti Climate Change" folks seem to be chainging their tune as they get floods/storms/drought out of all proportion to what should be happening. The changes that are happening, according to the IPCCC ( A non-partisan intergovernmental climate research group in Oslo), are essentially reacting with each other as they happen to exaggerate the effects/impacts in ways that are a tad more extreme that most predicted. Here is their web site with research..

England is on deck for more and more wet. Hopefully the ocean rise won't just sink it and Japan. BEN, BUY A BOAT!!!!

I went for a walk yesterday and at one point I just had to stop and turn around, all I could see was water, then I realised it was the Atlantic Ocean
