    Looks like a car scrapyard

    Inadequate defence against rain, flooding as the assumption is we'll never get enough to warrant it?

    LOL. I recall my little 'adventure' in the Saudi desert in 90-91. It rained for about 2 moinths and the arab armies all took it to be a bad sign. We just thought 'bloody typical'! We go to fight a war in one of the dryest, warment contries we can and the temp drops below zero and it rains! I have some great photos somewhere of the desert with a green tint as all of the waiting grass seeds began to grow!

    Raining again, it's like Monsoon or something. Watch the news, cos if 'the' dam breaks, we'll be awash with cr*p! Literally.
    The local hospitals have actually gone on to Lock Down, and guess what? It's called "Brown Alert"!
