      50 Year Storm Heading to the UK

      Anyone looking to head overseas to avoid Australia's wild weather would be wise to give the UK a miss.
      England and Wales are on flood alert as Britain braces for a "once in 50 years" storm which could bring a month's worth of rain and 70mph winds.
      The storm is expected to hit tomorrow - right in the middle of the peak summer season.

      More than 110mm rain is expected to fall in Wales in about 48 hours, the Weather Channel predicted. It also said there was a 50 per cent chance of a once-in-50 years 80mm deluge in just 12 hours.
      Britainís environment agency has dispatched hundreds of flood specialists to ensure the country is properly able to defend against the storm, clearing debris blocking rivers and drains. "There is a high risk of flooding, with the situation made even worse by ground being saturated from previous rain this week," Weather Channel forecaster Leon Brown said.

      Seems pretty calm right now, looks like a little rain fell over night but apart from that blue sky with a few high clouds. I'm working in a lovely village called Westerham and its such a nice village, I could easily live there, its like "midsommer murders" country. Back OT if it does p!66 down I hope it happens about 2pm, that'll do me - get in the pub early doors...
