Water Water Everywhere

I’ve always found it quite hard to understand why on an island surrounded by water we often have water shortages. I’m finding it even harder to understand how Thames Water have a hosepipe ban when I pass at least a dozen flooded fields on my way home from work.

Assuming flooding is better than drought (at least where both are in moderation) this is yet another reason why it’s better to be ‘up North’.

I'd just spoken to Ed's mum yesterday. This is mad. Mad mad mad. In suburban America people would be sneaking out to water their lawns at night. Which is also mad. It's all mad.
