Well, I was hoping for a white Christmas but here in Gloucester, it was more of a very wet Christmas! One of the more common features of the last month or so has been the rain, rain, rain…!
A slightly worrying by-product of the rain is the very high river water levels, particularly the River Severn which runs to the west of the built up area of Gloucester. I walked over to The Quay which runs alongside the river to check out the rather wet landscape which has developed over the last few weeks.

The floodplain is defo doing its job!
