Lets see the positive side to the floods:
The news is full of depressing photos and footage of the floods and all their negative effects, but there’s got to be some pockets of positivity in and amongst the misery, so share your good pics and videos of the positive side of the floods.
I’ll kick off with my dog enjoying a game of fetch in a flooded field (I was on a path that’s still above the flood water and not stupid enough to be stood knee deep in it!):

Also, seeing muslim charities out and about helping people in flood hit areas. When growing up in the 80s the local muslim population seemed very insular, and it is rare to hear the word muslim on TV without an accompanying “jihad” or “terror”, so it is great to see groups going out helping all and sundry and breaking down some stereotypes.
Tell that to the people of blyth, Newcastle, Middlesbrough, Whitby…
The only part of Middlesbrough that was flooded was Port Clarence and that is better off being under water. In Whitby Trenchers opened re-opened in days, so all is well.Posted 4 years agoaracerSubscribershermer75 wrote:

It’s made Eric Pickles look stupid, but I think that’s actually an advance on how he normally looks.
To be honest the floods are largely a positive to anybody who doesn’t live in a house which floods or have to travel and getting stuck in jams (as I did on Monday) – oh or in charge of the EA response, as my next door neighbour who I just met on Worcester bridge is, he sounded very tired of it and glad to have a day off tomorrow! Lots of people out enjoying themselves in the middle of Worcester the last couple of days. I also appreciated being able to ride in on the roads on my unicycle with virtually no traffic.Posted 4 years ago
