Flooding In Wroxham

Recommended Posts

I have seen flooding in Wroxham before, mostly near to the parking outside of the Hotel Wroxham but I have never seen flooding on the main road. Please see the link in EDP24 showing pictures from earlier this week.

Over the last week we have had rain most days in Sheffield between 125 - 150mm of rain and thunder & lightening, flaming June:naughty:

I remember the extraordinary summer of  1976, a cricket match at Buxton on June the 12th was 

snowed off. The next day the sun came out and didn't go back in until October, there is hope

yet.

One thing a lot of people don`t know is that oficially 75 was hotter than 76, but the summer of 76 started at easter, and ended in October, down in the south east anyway. But in 75, i remember when me and the lads went on bikes up to our local aifield on May bank holiday. It snowed, but 2 weeks later, i was riding my ne bike in a T shirt.  Only the British weather can do that.

April 19th 1976 in the Southeast (Brentwood to be precise) we had 6 ins of snow laying, how do i know my eldest daughter I collected from Harold Wood Hospital and the tender age of 6 days. It stayed cold until end of may. 1St June the sun came out and stayed until October, yes 75 was hot, but not as hot and sunny as 76 .
