Even though it is still snowing here in the Peak District today it is inevitable that there will be a thaw soon and the HUGE quantities of melt water will be rushing to the sea. If we get rain on snow it will be even worse. Now considering the amount of flooding that we've seen over recent years one would imagine that the Environment Agency would be preparing for a major emergency. However, I've heard no mention of this in the news at all and certainly no warnings for anybody to be prepared for it. I live on a hill so I'm not worrying but if I was in Shrewsbury, Stroud or Cirencester I'd be buying a boat and moving all my possessions upstairs. Thoughts?
