Floods in UK

Discussion in 'Diamond Lil's' started by Nutty, Jul 24, 2007.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. For all yooos that have missed it parts of the UK have a major over supply of water see todays press just in case you did not know.


    Even worse is that open seas wild life is getting further inland:



  2. Well thanks for the info Nutty...if I hadn't read your link there,would never have known about the floods.!!!

    (Typing this floating around in my chair in three feet of water with a shark biting my arse!!!) :thumright: :threaten:

    Like to keep you lads in UK up to date with local affairs in case you missed it. Morse and I, we are neighbours, have to suffer yet another day of sun mid 80's F now. It last rained about 3 months ago, but then we do live in Europes only recognised desert.

  4. Glorious sunshine here on the Clyde - don't know what all the Southern softies are moaning about...
  5. Glorious sunshine here too, in London. Never mind what the brainless bird on GMTV says.. :)
  6. Do I need to say what it's like over here?
  7. OK you sunshine boys, Stratford upon Avon (not far from me) has been renamed Stratford IN the Avon!! :nemo: :nemo:

    (Will soon be over there Nutty, right next door to you, so please keep the sunshine going...ta!!)
  8. As per Nutty and T.A.'s comments ....... same here in Cyprus! A very pleasant 86'f in the shade at the mo ........ Rain? What's that?

  9. Oh.........................FCUK..........OFF!!!!
  10. What about the hosepipe ban?
    :tp: :nemo: :nemo: :pottytrain5: :wav: :toilet:
  11. On a more helpful note, if you've got the bags...I've got the sand.

    Here in Petawawa, we're looking for another day in the high 80s and glorious sunshine - however, unlike the Cyprus contingent, we have had some rain recently. Last Thursdya night/Friday morning a storm took up residence over the Upper Ottawa Valley and dumped a record, for July, amount of rain overnight - a touch over 4 inches of rain fell in a 4 hour period resulting in....... nothing, nada, zilch, diddley-squat, sweet FA, etc. Apparently the lack of high-density development allows water to run-off and prevents inland urban regions from re-badging as water-sports areas!
  13. Last year cruising the Greek Islands,this year sailing around the Cotswolds.
  14. But troublemakers have contaminated some of the 1,000-odd drinking water bowsers deployed around Gloucestershire.

    Brigadier Jolyon Jackson, who is leading the army operation in the county, said there had been two such cases.

    The Sun newspaper reported that some bowsers had been contaminated with urine and bleach, while another had been drained by laughing louts within 15 minutes of its arrival in Cheltenham.

    Each day I wonder how low these scum bags can reach.

    On tv last night the reporter asked a asian why he needed so much water when he noticed the boot of the car was full. When the limit stated was just a few litres per person. Probably wanted it for the curry house. PRAT!!

    Feck Jack Ali is fine!!
  15. I thought my days of having to use half a bowl of water to wash, shave , wash my knicks etc were over. Its not easy having to rely on bottles of water and bowsers(which are frequently empty) but then I look half a mile down the lane and see the poor sods who have had their homes wrecked by the floods and can't realy complain. We had minimal water damage, no electricity for a day, no phones or TV (cable) and of course water is off until next week earliest but we are the lucky ones.
    There are always those that seem to profit from other peoples misfortunes though as the previous post shows. :threaten:
  16. So them with floods think thay have problems what about poor old Essex


    A major earthquake measuring 5.8 on the Richter scale hit in the early
    hours of Friday 27th July 2007. Epicentre: Basildon, Essex. Victims were
    seen wandering around aimlessly muttering "fackin' 'ell"

    The earthquake decimated the area causing approximately 25p worth of damage.
    Several priceless collections of mementos from the Balearics and Spanish
    Costa's were damaged beyond repair. Three areas of historic burnt out cars
    were disturbed. Many locals were woken well before their giro arrived.

    Essex FM News (State Radio Station) reported that hundreds of residents
    were confused and bewildered, still trying to come to terms with the fact
    that something interesting had happened in Basildon.

    One resident - Tracy Sharon Smith, a 17-year-old mother of 5 said "It was
    such a shock, my little Chardonnay Mercedes came running into my bedroom
    crying. My youngest two, Tyler-Morgan and Megan-Storm slept through it all.
    I was still shaking when I was watching Trisha at lunchtime." Apparently
    though, looting, muggings and car crime are carrying on as normal.

    The British Red Cross has so far managed to ship 4,000 crates of Sunny
    Delight to the area to help the stricken locals. Rescue workers are still
    searching through the rubble and have found large quantities of personal
    belongings, which include benefit books, jewellery from Elizabeth Duke at
    Argos and Bone China from Poundland.


    This appeal is to raise money for food and clothing, parcels for those
    unfortunate to be caught up in this disaster. Clothing is most sought
    after, items most needed include: Fila or Burberry baseball caps, Kappa
    tracksuit tops (his and hers), Shell suits (female), White sport socks and
    Rockport boots. Food parcels may be harder to come by, but are needed all
    the same. Required foodstuffs include Microwave meals, tins of baked beans,
    ice cream and cans of Colt 45 or Special Brew.

    22p buys a biro for filling in the compensation forms,
    1 GBPound buys chips, crisps and blue fizzy drinks for a family of 9,
    5 GBP will pay for a packet of B & H and a lighter to calm the nerves of those affected.


    Rescue workers found a girl in the rubble smothered in blood - 'Where are
    you bleeding from?' they asked - 'ROMFORD' said the girl 'Woss it gotta do
    wiv you?'
