With typical British aplomb, Twitter users in the UK commented with tongue in cheek jabs at Britain’s rainy summer. While the UK is known for rain, it has not been a typical summer and flash floods have cropped up in many locales. Some weather experts were predicting a month’s worth of rain to fall in a single day this month. Summer isn’t entirely over but it looks like UK dwellers are ready to say goodbye to summer style weather, and doing it with a smile.
- Recent flash-flooding in Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire resulted in areas of standing water as high as 3 feet.
- Social media users rallied, offering morale boosting images, like Noah’s ark, and GOT’s Jon Snow, battling the elements.
- Many drivers abandoned their vehicles and first responders were busy from Bridlington to Humber.
“In the middle of Britain’s summer, you might not have expected to see heavy downpours bringing flooding to parts of the country – with a month’s worth of rain set to fall today.”
