Re: storm and floods in GB - is everyone ok?
^Well that's part of the reason more concreate, building on flood plains etc.. Another I think is just the volume of water that's been falling as rain. The ground has absorbed as much water as it can.
We've also had some of the wettest months on record this year, and not many hot (well hot for the UK) periods to help dry.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
