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. Just been watching the news and seeing how many flood warnings are in place where's worst in the UK for flooding, and why
     
  2. Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire has to be in with a shout.It lies where the Warwickshire Avon runs into the Severn.Although the water does not get into the main town when water levels are high as in 2007 it can be cut off in all directions.
     
  3. But is that becoming an annual event, just wondering as I haven't lived in the Uk for a number of years and flooding seems to be more happening with more regularity, or appears to be on the news
     
  4. It's all to do with the jet stream and the angle of the earth's tilt at a particular time of the year. The tree huggers will tell you its global warming and its all our fault so lets build more wind farms and put up green taxes but they talk bollox.
     

  5. So are we in a say seven year cycle for eg or is it just the fact that houses are being built in flood plain areas causing the water to back up and flood otherwise flood free areas
     
  6. Building houses on a flood plain would be OK if it didn't feckin' rain so much. We are getting more than our usual share of the wet stuff.
