Nearly into March and I don’t think we’ve seen a single proper snowflake* this winter in this part of the world (Wiltshire). I wonder if we are due another ‘Beast from the East’?
Coracles at the ready folks!Looks like Shrewsbury is going to get the highest peak levels ever recorded, looks like the town could really get cut off if it keeps raining
Glad I'm not travelling over there for once
Didn't last weekends rain cause a landslip on the road-widening scheme?I've just driven over the Heads of the Valleys, the ground is already saturated and you can see the water just running straight off the mountain sides. Little mini waterfalls and small streams where it is usually sheep and pony tracks. I can see villages downstream getting a bit soggy again in the next day or two.
I'm 200 metres away from the river, but I'm also 100 metres above it.Shrewsbury not hit so bad since the early 80's & more built up since then.
Always worked on the belief of being at the top of the hill and.or at least a mile from any river/water course!
