My city flooded (again)

York (the old one in England, not the new one in USA) has to deal with regular flooding. The floods this week are the deepest for more than 10 years. Here are a few scenes from my walk to work yesterday.

The Knavesmire, York's racecourse (horse racing)

There was supposed to be a fun fair on the Knavesmire this week

My bus to work usually passes down this street

Hope you liked the pics. So far as I know, no one has been hurt by the floods in York. Locals treat it as part of life in this historic city. Those not effected directly may even enjoy it.

All taken with Samsung NX100 and 50-200mm.

No pics as yet but if the rivers keep rising and the sea does too I could be living on a little Island

Thank you Oliver, you are too kind.

Might be nice Michael. Living on a little island and warmer weather.

Indeed kuvvy, it must be heartbreaking for those effected (just watched the owners of some of the businesses in the street in my pics on the news starting to clean up) but great fun taking pics of it.

I took some shots of the local river last week ....brimming its banks.
We had a RF meet in York (last year ,Paul ?) and I remember it being red hot.
