England under water
Australia's had more rain this past year that anytime for many, many decades, in fact it's still raining in far off Queensland and there's no sign if it stopping anytime soon. So far there has been around 25 drownings, mainly from fools jumping into swollen rivers for some surfing or boogie boarding but occasionally by people trying to drive though flooded causeways.
None of this directly affects me here in the desert country of South Australia, except that we'll be paying a lot more for fruit and veg during the next year or so...but the prices always go up anyway, ever heard of grocery prices going down?
But I digress:
From Queensland, through New South Wales and soon into Victoria there is already a chunk of Australia under water greater in size than the entire United Kingdom...and the rain hasn't stopped and the flood waters still haven't reached the sea, and wont for another three months!
Come on people...drink more water and help us out here!
