Distant Rain

The past 17 months have seen the driest conditions on record in the East of England, and the South East isn’t fairing much better. This report from the Environment Agency shows that river flow, reservoir and ground water levels are well below what is considered normal. The report suggests the measures that might need to be taken if we do not get significant rainfall in the near future, with vague terms such as ‘customer restrictions’ and ‘efficiency education’ being mentioned. I don’t think we are near the Great Drought of 1976 yet, but if this goes on for a few more months that may change.

    This is such a strange concept for us to adjust too, but it does seem more potentially serious in the long term this time.

      It does, although as it was a bank holiday this past weekend we had quite a bit of rain. Thanks for looking.
