    Getting concerned

    Ok, well in that case you may well be right. What is worrying, is that we've hit 850 with two months to go. We're gonna need a bigger boat.

    Your current weather.

    Yes the flood defences are much better now than years ago, but there's a lot of water comming down the three main rivers above York. In Dec 15 both of the bridges over the Swale near me were closed for a few days while the big water went through, I think the Jorvik centre got flooded that year...
