You are right though, the whole world is affected. I think with us though it's worse, being a small island with such a condensed population.


I don't think that it helps knowing that the island itself is slowly (very slowly) tipping eastward into the sea. That and the whole North-East coast being clothed in little more than loose rocks bound by clay. I was in Filey just after the flash floods there in 2007. It was heartbreaking, it left massive gouges in the cliffs, and each year it gets worse.

The blame this time seems to be down to a knock on from El Nino but the overall forecast for us, for climate change, is that it is going to keep getting wetter and wetter. In terms of flood defences, we need to start looking at models that address entire catchments, not just major water ways. There is more that could be done, at the very least, to slow run off from up land areas. While protecting people's property is a priority, there needs to be an equal, if not greater, emphasis placed on protecting the structural integrity of the land. It needs to be more sponge, less drainer.

At least he's out and about trying to help in his own special way.


That's very disturbing...



...in so many ways.

You just know Cameron's not screaming those words. Probably just wondering if the wane is ok.

"My stomach is now so deeply disturbed it may never recover."

I think that's Peppa Pig's sentence, but sorry to have offended anyone's sensibility's. I would feel bad, but its not like im telling porky's.


Jokes aside my heart does indeed go out to any and all affected by these floods, hopefully they will subside soon and our government penny's up with regards to restoration.

The A93 isn't looking too good either:



Not my photo, found on BBC's live feed and winterhighland. About 1.5 miles east of Crathie.

Oh my god, is that the Braemar road? Or was that the Braemar road, I should say.

No worries, sensibilities intact, just a residual urge to heave and a slight fear of what my dreams may bring...

I shall be approaching your posts with greater caution in future.

According to weather forecast there's more heavy rain due today from 1pm to 4pm then light rain for another 2 hours, rain due Sunday and Monday too with nearly 100 flood warnings for UK today. I do wonder how things will be if we have a cold winter with snow and then we get snow melt combined with rain, I think flooding could be much worse.

It never ceases to amaze me how very sharply defined the affected areas are.I know I'm several hundred miles south of where all this bad stuff is happening,but driving through Sussex today I see rivers such as the Adur and Uck which have both taken lives before now are both barely above their summer levels.

Yes, it is the (ex) Braemar road/Perth - Aberdeen via Braemar and Glenshee road.

Snow and ice are marginally better, a slow thaw meters the drain down somewhat, except when we're having periodic warm bursts, as we have been, which could lead to rapid thaw. Joy!

Still, I'd really like some snow this winter, knee deep if possible.

I was flapping a bit before....come about 2pm the heavens opened and unleashed hell! I've never seen rain as heavy, it persisted until about 5pm.

All the best everyone, let's hope 2016 is a bit better.

Happy New Year damp friends.


Here's hoping 2016 is kinder to us. It's a bit frosty here which makes a change and it's dry for now. Fingers crossed.

Well that didn't last long! Aberdeenshire took a battering again:

The Don burst its banks



Ellon



Don't forget , they're dealing with snow at the same time. Uurgh. Just spoke to my mother, who says the rain has finally stopped up there.
This thread is going to be good to look back on in the future and if nothing else, we'll see if anything changes.

I've been told that winter will be coming towards us next week...which with all this water still mounting up is not going to be anywhere near pretty.

Hope you and your's are staying safe.

Best.
