Pocklington Flood - the irony......

Oh, bitter irony....
Just googled for "Pocklington floods" and "Pocklington flooding" and in amongst all the other stuff is one of my posts from before I moved up here.

But the worst thing was finding out we're within 500m of a serious flood risk zone. Until you realise that it means the flood has to be severe to get within 500m of us. Not that the risk is severe. In other words, there's a stream running through Pocklington and in the worst flooding ever seen in the country it might just burst it's banks and still wouldn't be anywhere near us.

Ooops. Seems I spoke too soon. Although it didn't reach us, it did get pretty scarily near.
Just one of life's little ironies.
