And then there will be complaints that it is too hot and we will be praying for rain especially once the water companies start issuing hose pipe bans.

Tobias Elwood "Good to see Iford Pk residents in such good spirits despite threat of yet another evac re Stour flooding. Fingers crossed all can stay put.
9:43 PM - 14 Feb 2014" Do they really have any choice? They're probably used to seeing their hard earned possessions and homes being flooded without some fool stating the obvious.
Oh and what is that woman doing walking her dog at 10.18pm in a flooded area? Do people have no sense?

I left Bournemouth forty seven years ago to come to Canada. I can't believe what you guys are going through. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this terrible time. I will be checking in from time to time to see how things are going . In the meantime I wish you all - GOOD LUCK.
