Carlisle Floods

December 08, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Well here we go again! A once in a hundred year event, which seem to be happening every five or so years, If I hear the word unprcedented one more time I think I will spontaneously combust!

Rant over!

Suffice to say we are flooded again and my home town is a bit of a mess really, I went for a wander around to review the damage yesterday. Bear in mind the flood waters have receeded a great deal now and the actual levels of the day before were far, far worse than they are now. The mopping up is now taking place all across Cumbria and Lancashire, with roads washed away and virtually no railways to speak of it's going to take a while to get us back on our feet again but rest assured we will, such is the reslience of the people from Cumbria and Lancashire.

I'll not say enjoy the pictures as there is little to enjoy but I'll put them up here as a reminder of what we are currently trying to overcome...
