Flood risk -

Well everything the Council does in Densham Avenue and Hawleys Lane seems to have no effect at all so I am not surprised. I would like to see the original article you read though Obs as I suspect it may be affected by Climate Alarmism!

"The new research by Bristol-based flood-mapping business, Fathom, is based on the first model to use climate crisis data to predict which areas will be the most at risk of flooding due to rivers or heavy rainfall (non-costal) in Great Britain by mid-century."

So not official but hyped up rubbish as a sales gimmick using even more hyped up climate excuses!

What is worse they claim a 30 year increase of : Warrington, England – 14.36%, up from 13.28% which doesn't seem a significant increase when WBC should be worried about the 13.28%.

 

BTW I just did cut and paste from the Yahoo article and the original was in that paragon of Left wing climate activism, The Independent. Not a significant story in my book.

When my house insurance went up yet again I phoned to complain as after 12 years no claims 'its not really fair.

I was told my post code was in a designated flood zone'

I explained that we had recently had £23 million pounds worth of flood defence completed.

Immediately without a moments pause ...I was told it did not count as we were still designated a flood risk..😲. It's crazy I was banging my head against a brick wall 

It seemed obvious the call handler was working off a sheet of standard caller answers. 

It's daylight robbery putting it mildly 😒

According to the flood maps, I’m in an at-risk area but in the whole of my life we’ve never come anywhere close to being flooded. I sometimes wonder if the people that create these computer models know how to account for the drainage capacity of the ship canal.

last time i checked we were on the edge of a flood risk area.

looking at the worst case scenario if the water reached our house i would be looking for some guy with a big wooden boat filed with two of each animal....:rolleyes:

Thinking about how the ship canal helps to prevent the Mersey from flooding, I was wondering if the same principle could be applied at Sankey Brook by allowing excess water to drain into the Sankey Canal. It’d need a good clear out to remove several miles of silt and reeds but it’d be money well spent if it stopped the flooding in that area.

got to find them first Bill.

so many picture files on various hard drives and memory cards that finding a particular set is a few hours searching. (mrs sids photo fame gadget has over 1400 pictures on it alone)

if i do find them i will probably try google photo as i have an account with them i was surprised to find out. (must have set it up ages ago and forgot about it)

My program of choice for photo editing is photoshop 7 it is something i have used for quite a while so know a lot of the quirks it has to offer and good for cleaning up old photos, even the very faded ones if i scan them in at a high resolution.

will keep searching they must be in one of the many folders inside folders inside folders i have stored away........👀
