Oh Kealey and Ste. Oh my god. I don't even know what to say, it's just going to sound like a platitude. I'm glad you're safe, though.

Yes, my sympathy kind of waned dramatically for the Sainsburys photo.

Pity they can not sell the houses they have next to the river because of flooding isn't it.
Easy to say "Just move" but in reality....

Better to grow flippers and fins than a back bone, the way it's heading.

What's 'shooles' ?

It's called the Lake District for a reason, it has many lakes and rivers, pretty hard not to be near one....and a lot of the affected homes are nowhere near the rivers, that's how high they have rose.

Cleanup underway, things starting to return to normal, had a bit of a scare yesterday with high winds and torrential rain.

Hopefully we have seen the end of it for this year.

On a cheerful note, here is a 72 year old gentleman, Peter Clarkson from Kendal, swimming to put the kettle on! (photo courtesy of the Express.)

Oh my god, that looks like hepatitis soup. Don't swim in it!!!
Some of the photos have been terrible, people's houses are ruined. We've got your gales today, along with hailstones and when they stop, more rain. Sort of biblical weather.

It's been like that today here as well.....I just hope the flooding stops totally before the really cold weather kicks in, or we are looking at one heck of a skating rink!

How you gettin on up there? Been watching the news and it looks awful. Feel really sorry for those who's houses have been wrecked, just before Xmas and no let up in the weather on the horizon. It's a proper disaster.

I'm fine, been helping out with folks who weren't so lucky. We're on yellow alert for flooding again today (Saturday)...hopefully it wont be too bad.

I know I've been trying to look on the bright side of things through this thread, but after seeing so many people devastated over loosing their stuff, the bright side has gone a bit dim.

Glad you're ok. I can't even begin to imagine how bloody horrible it must be to get flooded like that.

a reply to: woogleuk I guess the timing couldn't have been much worse with the build up to Xmas and not much sign of the weather improving to dry things out . Glad your ok though and able to lend a hand to those in the need. Fingers crossed the weather improves, best of luck.

Sorry Peter, but you're swimming the wrong way, Ol chap, your kettle is to the left, still has some water in it too.

You poor buggers over there. You dreaming of a dry Christmas?.

Ah, going to be mid 30s C here next week. Might grab the togs, put on the thongs and head to the beach to do some perv......Swimming, yes swimming.....Be thinking of you all.....Merry Xmas.

BTW...Isnt Peter a little worried swimming in his kitchen with the overhead lights on......lucky for him, electricity doesnt run to the plug sockets under the water level, even when they are switched off..........??????

Hope the weather improves over there......Theres always room down here for you all.

The whole of the North is facing crisis.....after witnessing it here in Cumbria over the last few weeks, my heart goes out.

This is an unprecedented situation people, never in 35 years have I personally known it be this bad....stay safe all those affected, there is worse to come


Live: North of England flooding

Yorkshire, Lancashire, Cumbria......everywhere is in danger.

Northern cousins, I don't know where to start. Is everyone from the North here ok?









I'm a wee bit older than you (39) but like you, I have never in my life seen floods like this across the area, and for so long. Nobody is getting a chance to recover, it's just relentless. Storm 'Frank' is coming in tomorrow I think, God knows what that will bring. There's folk saying they'll stay upstairs in their homes, but to be honest they'd be better getting out all together.
What if the house collapses?

All of this just before New Year, what a start to 2016 - it's rotten. Thinking of you all.

Driving through Yarrow Valley from Manchester today and the woodlands were all flooded. Golf courses, M61, gardens, fields etc. All were covered in standing water. It was that bad down one road that there were 5-6 cars abandoned and the water was too deep to get a car through. They must have tried to plough through, stalled their engines (waiting ten minutes should have worked) and left the area on foot. We had to turn round and go another route and even that route was the same with waterlogged land and floods.

All the best anyway and good luck getting your area back to how it should be. Today's newspaper was panicking about '12 inches of snow' and minus 10 next week. They are such a bunch of arses.

People higher up like myself are fine, but I haven't met anyone yet that hasn't had a loved one affected by this. The government needs to do more financing flood defenses.

It wouldn't be so bad if it was the summer, but there are so many vulnerable people with the cold and this.....

In the US such "defenses" are based on the concept of "100 year flooding" and such. A "20 year" flood can be planned for and mitigated more effectively than a "100 year" flood.


Any idea where on that sort of scale this would lie?

The newspaper sensationalise the snow every year, the Express is notoriously bad for it. I think 1997 was really the last year where it was of any true concern.

Sounds like you caught it earlier on, it's gotten worse since then...Cumbria is actually seeing the least worse of this one, Yorkshire the worst.

I'm just praying it doesn't go below freezing whilst this water is still so high.

Hardly bears thinking about. The one thing that's made the flooding and endless rain half-tolerable has warm temperatures - a cold snap would turn adversity into hardship. Kids and old people wouldn't cope well.

@ Phage - Merry Christmas old bean


ETA - Does this help to answer your question?
