Maybe a bit worse than i was expecting in York, to be fair. 3rd highest recorded river level. Not too surprising though really as we had 54 hours
continuous rain from sunday onwards, more sporadic since then. And by continuous i really do mean continuous.........didn't even stop for a minute!
Still, as we are all used to it life goes on as normal. People still using the bars and pubs, for example, just moving the tables and chairs ever so
slightly higher! Police had an appeal on local media just after lunch today, basically asking people to stop ignoring them! Seems people don't like
being told they can't try a certain route, etc. Good for them, says i. They also asked for calm as apparently people are getting rather aggressive
when jobsworths in yellow jackets try to stop them going places!
Today has also seen the return of the idiots round here - those that live right next to a river, in a flood plain, in an area that used to be marsh
and swamp - that the "authorities" aren't doing enough to prevent the flooding. D'uh, dumbos!
