This was the scene of the floods back in March. It's a field on my way to work - alternate route, that is, since my normal route was flooded. The water was probably several feet deep. I thought at the time it was some of the worst floods we've seen in years. I was wrong. Those floods were bad in that region, but they were very localized and only low places along rivers [mainly The Severn] were flooded.

We are now currently experiencing even worse floods all across the country. Worse because many are flash floods due to torrential rainfall that we are just not used to here. Drains in many places have trouble coping. City centers are flooded. River banks have burst. A reservoir in Yorkshire is about to burst its banks. A reservoir! Usually in the summer we have problems with not enough rain... "rain not falling in the right places", they say, and reservoirs running dry. This is the first time I've heard of a reservoir about to burst its banks due to too much rain. It's scary.
