All This Flooding

Post by Dances With Otters » January 2nd, 2018, 9:37 pm

I have to wonder if folks realise just how much flooding is going on.
I am hearing bridge clearance levels that defy belief.
I hope we don't get some more heavy rainfall and winds as I think this place is going to disappear under water soon.

And can you imagine what the current must be like running through Yarmouth?

What's it like this morning then? I was planning on being back on the week, but it's not going to happen now due to work commitments :(
My boat is down the duke at Acle, I'll get someone to check on it later

I am at Salhouse waiting for it to get light so I can move as it's blowing a gale and I am right under a tree so it's not good and if current weather is to go on, then it's not recommended at the moment.
However, being Norfolk it could be sunny and blue skies in an hour.

It has been flooded several times down on the southern broads in the last week,so much so we haven't been able to get off the boat on occasion.
Yesterday afternoon was spent putting on extra lines and securing all the deck items, topping up the diesel for the heating and filling the water tanks so there's no need to go outside when its like this.
Right now it is blowing really hard. Lots of noise, but no real danger. Kettle's on and so is radio 4, just going to relax in the cabin and wait it out. Forecast says the storm will ease a bit tomorrow morning then pick up a little tomorrow night, then friday it should all calm down.
Curiously, no flooding this morning, we were expecting it to be worse than yesterday.

It's flooded on the north. I was a bit close to the trees but have moved now. Pretty strong up here.

I heard that Ludham bridge clearance was down to 7’ yesterday, not hearing much by way of flood posts on FB so I’m guessing not so bad as expected on northern broads either
