Flooding on the Thames

I went for a walk at lunchtime to look at the size of the Thames. I didn't even realise there had been any flooding till they talked about it on the local news. I didn't think it had rained that much recently, but being ill and not going out for a week, you don't tend to take that much notice of the weather.

There were quite a few other people out on the bridge, looking at the river and taking photos. I have a few at flickr. This one is of the pub by the river. The steps go down to an area right next to the river with tables and chairs. You can just see the lamps at the bottom of the set of steps - they're usually a lot higher above ground.

All that's flooded round here, though, are the flood plains (the pub know that area goes under water in winter). Sensibly, no one's built on them, unlike by Tescos in Reading.

I should point out that the Thames isn't usually that brown. I mean, it is disgusting, even this far upstream, it just doesn't usually look too bad.

I was awake earlier but now my head hurts from the noise and I can't breathe. I want to go back to Belfast!
