No No
Not an argument about whether floods are PC  >>:-(

Just be thankful your carpets are dry.

Help them in what way, There is no evidence of anyone actually in trouble there, What would they be able to do if there were.  It all looks pretty calm.. 

Great looking ship..

Any Members from the Wallasey and or New Brighton or Hoylake Clubs on here today, ?..  I assume your clubs got a battering..

Lighten up!!

Pardon ! Lighten up in what way ? I have no problems Thanks..

If you are referring to my comment about the other clubs, Then If you check my signature you will see that these clubs are quite close to ours, We have a good relationship with the other clubs and regularly attend functions there, also I know that the ponds are not more than 5 meters away from the sea (Hoylake practically in the sea) and as such would have got a good kicking from Mother Nature (as per the you tube link I posted)  8)

Darn it!  I never thought to get my model out during our floods last month - mind you it was only waist-deep in the middle of town, where the kids were swimming off the Siam Commercial Bank's steps.
Perhaps I'll be better prepared for next-year's floods ...

The Long Build.

Please accept my apologies but I had a serious brain phart!
I was looking at Gazou's reply, (among others), then  looked at something else on this same thread and then brain pharted.
It was not meant to insult or upset you by any means.
I hope we can still get along on this site.

Kind regards,

Ron.

No probs..  In fairness I can see where Gazou's post is coming from, and thankfully I have never been affected by a flood and hope never to be.
I have just been reading up on the 1990 storm which took out the old swimming baths at NB,. it really amazes me that we build so close to the sea on what I believe is all reclaimed land from the sea, the bath's lasted 54 years, I wonder if the new Morrison's and other builds will do the same ?.

Hi Larry, Yes mate I can say that the lake in New Brighton got a good pounding from mother nature, at times you could not see the wall surrounding the lake so as far as our next event goes this may well be skip filling event as I would imagine there's a lot of sludge in the bottom if the car park is anything to go by.

See you soon mate. :-)) :-)) :-)) :-))

Regards Dave.

Few more pictures.





Whoever said it was an old dock appears to be right. Or at least it looks like a river burst its banks.

You know, never really considered UK as Europe, your just that wee bit of to the side, so to speak.  %)
Europeans, speak foreign and I can't understand them.  {:-{
Mind you, whole areas in the UK I can't understand the lingo either.  O0
Even after living and working there for more than 4 years {-) .
Oops, rambling again, must be the wind wistling through that cavity between the ear canals.  :o
Hope everyone made it thru the storm unscathed.
cheers
