It never rains, but it pours...
I do hope our regular commenter Timbo is not yet planing to spend Valentines day with his canoe. Struggling to work today on trains that don't work for the nth day in a row has not been much of a joy. Worse still for some close friends of mine who live on an island in the the River Thames at Shepperton - well, it used to be an Island; now it is just part of the River.
Business wise the unending storms are very bad for our economy, confidence and happiness are so important and with constant terrible Weather these things can be affected. It does not help with the politicians all playing the lets-point-at-one-another and pull silly faces game. Still, I guess that is what they pay them for.
So the bit question...just how wet is it? I am 38 and cannot remember a Winter like this, of course there have been far colder and such; but I don't remember one that is just so wet? Am I wrong and if so how bad can it get?
