Whatever happened to that Arctic Front?

No, that is not Cockney rhyming slang! I am actually referring to the bitterly cold weather predicted on national television for this autumn.

Far from temperatures plummeting below zero with blizzards, we seem to be in mid monsoon season, with almost daily heavy rain causing the River Wye to rise.

So far, I am pretty sure that the Wye has not risen above normal levels expected for the time of year but fear the worst is yet to come, with more heavy rain and gale force winds predicted for Wednesday onwards. Last Sunday produced some fine weather however, with temperatures in the low 60s and sunshine during the morning which enabled people to get out and about, enjoying the spectacular views of the River Wye in flood.

The photograph to the left was actually taken in the Hope & Anchor car park, which on Sunday morning was only navigable by boat. I took hundreds of other flood photographs around Ross but have just published a few here as there are plenty of other Ross floods covered elsewhere on this web site. Below is the standard Ross view from Bridstow Bridge and below that, the first of what I suspect will be many cellars being pumped out by the local fire brigade.

I feel that over the coming century global warming will take place and we will see much more rain here and climatic change elsewhere in the world but, although I think the human race should take care of the environment, the human caused 'greenhouse effect' is only a drop in the ocean compared to the long term natural cycle of climatic change.

It is always worth remembering that dinosaurs were environmentally friendly!
