Flooding

Record rainfall over the past month has caused extensive flooding in parts of Ireland, especially in Cork, Galway and the Midlands. Many homes and businesses were flooded, causing millions of Euro's worth of damage. My collage shows the river Shannon (Ireland's longest river) overflowing it's banks at Athlone.
The experts, like those meeting at the UN climate summit in Copenhagen blame "Global Warming" for freak weather conditions that are causing havoc around the world. Global warming - in this case surely a contradiction in terms!

Ah, what a sad sight...
Yes, the weather is a bit crazy all over Europe (world?) these days. I wonder what kind of winter is in store for us.

UK had flooding too but where I am there's been very little. I am so fortunate.
