The UK is wetter than usual.

I know Brits complain about the weather, but this time there is good reason.

I can't remember it ever flooding like this before in the South, although 2 summers ago there was flooding in other areas. http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012...n_2388664.html

It has rained almost every day since the beginning of December combined with very high winds.

There is political talk of no expense to be spared to get things back to normal, but at the moment the farmers are in a terrible state with livestock and ruined supplies. Environmentally they are talking about the floods taking a very long time to subside, but I rather hope that they are just being pessimistic.

We're not fairing much better in Ireland Clava.

Caption competition: Choppy going at Cork Racecourse

I can't see them racing in Cork anytime soon... BUT I'm thinking they could use it for swimming competitions!

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

Oh my goodness! I hope you stay safe and the rain comes to a stop soon.

My area was flooded pretty bad back in '11. There are still a few abandoned houses to this day.

So sorry for everyone coping with that, I hate flooding. I'll stop complaining about cold and snow now, because I would rather deal with this than flooding

I am sorry for the flooding in your part of the world! It looks awful!

It feels like we are about to flood here in Southern Oregon. I have 2 huge lakes in my field and the rain is still pouring down.
