I sure am glad my boat is three miles up the Hamble River right now! I sure am sorry I'm three thousand mikes away from her, however

Nope, they also have good beer and very pretty girlies, both of which will lead you astray

Re: Storm Ruth Coming to UK!

A friend of mine from Didcot has to stay in London because the Oxford train station (and presumably, the rail line) is flooded. My sense is that the only part of the Thames not currently in flood is just upstream from the tidal barrier in London...the rest is now a sort of long, skinny lake.



I'm glad my relatives in Cardiff live up the hill in Penarth instead of down at the water.
