I've heard him sing and it was his fault that it rained :) :) :)
I pretty much try to stay in a constant state of confusion just because of the expression it leaves on my face.

Apparently....

Flood lessons 'must be learned'

Lessons must be learned from the floods, Prime Minister Gordon Brown has said, after severe weather caused chaos across parts of England and Wales.

Thousands of motorists spent a night stuck on the M5

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/6910029.stm


Does anyone know if we (the H.A.) got involved with this? I thought we'd been created to stop this sort of thing happening after what happen in January, 2003; check out:-

Motorists still facing snow misery

and especially the quote;

"The important thing is to understand what went wrong and to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Those photos bring me on to a question. If the weather gets THAT bad, are we trained or equipped to work in those conditions?

I mean, how would a TO jeep pass that flooding, or get through the gridlock of cars now stuck on either side? Off network would be jammed at that point and there would be no chance of getting through.

I know that the junctions fore and aft would be closed down, but someone has to move all those cars back round?

Looks like first on scene at the back - thinking, "Oh Image!"
