The River Sowe at Longford, Coventry. It's been over its banks three or four times in recent months and whenever it's been contained within them it's been only just. Longford Park was underwater at one point and I've never seen that happen before. Even my spaniels were amazed by the transformation of their daily haunt.
The river under this footbridge is usually a good jump across from one bank to the other and less than a foot deep, but recently it's looked like a river five times its true size. At the height of the floods it was up to the handrail. It's started carving new channels across the flood plain — one looks like it might be the new course if it deepens sufficiently and if this constant rain continues then it might well do it!
Mother Nature eh? Last Winter no rain to speak of, this winter the deficit made up in a month.
It can't last forever, can it?
