Apres le deluge

061001-flood003
Monsoon like weather in London: got about 5cm of rain in an hour. Add this to several weeks of heavy showers and the garden can take no more. Result: the greenhouse floods.

Climate change? September was the hottest on record, as was July. August and September were very wet as well. Thunderstorms and squally showers are unusual for October. Two of the dryest winters on record in 2004/5 and 2005/6.

Just sayin'.

When the flood calls
You have no home, you have no walls
In the thunder crash
You're a thousand minds, within a flash
Don't be afraid to cry at what you see
The actors gone, there's only you and me
And if we break before the dawn,
They'll use up what we used to be.

Lord, here comes the flood
We'll say good-bye to flesh and blood
If again the seas are silent
In any still alive
It'll be those who gave their island to survive
Drink up, dreamers, you're running dry.
