The floods of October 2000 were caused by heavy rain all over the country, 'NOT' by an early snowfall melting, Wallgate under the railway bridge at Newtown, also flooded in October 2000 at the same time as it did at Abbey Lakes :)
Stuart, I have checked my diary for 30th October 2000 when i took the above photo. There was indeed a heavy snowfall that morning that did thaw very rapidly and cause the above flooding. It is however true that there was more general flooding at that time caused by rain in some parts of the country, I also noted that in my diary on the same date. I did not note any heavy rain in UpHolland area on 30th October 2000.
It's not all that deep, a diesel car would love going through that!
Garry. Please put your brain in gear before opening your
mouth, water makes other parts [IE]brakes and other parts
seize up has a ex spark your not very bright are you. D.C.
Derick...I'm an experience ex truck driver, delivering coal to houses in the 1960s. I drove through many deep fords with the Austin truck and also my car. After you've slowly drove through in 1st gear, then keep your foot on the brake for a short time, no problem job done. Has I've always said before, driving is all about common sense. After saying that, I can understand some motorist not wanting to pass through it, but it looks ok to me driven sensibly. Petrol cars would cut-out if you drove too fast..water on the distributor cap and plug-leads. Diesel vehicles no problem...I hope I've been helpful.
Snow?? there's leaves on the trees yet. It looks like Autumn time.
Alex, yes, it was a very early snowfall, one of the earliest I can remember in fact.
Yes Duncan that explains the rapid thaw in October 2000 and Autumn time. Thanks.
Garry, if a diesel car went through that, it would conk out as soon as the exhaust went under water.
Jimmy, never in a million years would a Diesel engine "conk out as you put it" (you don't sound too mechanically minded with the term, CONK). Even a petrol engine CAN run with the exhaust in water, it would blow it out the way. The only time water would stop diesels is water in the air intake, and that's a fact.
Garry, I have had a lot more experience of diesel engines than someone who used to deliver coal in the sixties.
Well then, you should know that I'm right again!
DIESEL CONK OUT IN WATER....WHAT EVER NEXT. I've heard it all now lol ha ha ha.
No Garry, you are wrong, if the water was too deep the diesel engine would cut out, I think it would be okay going through the water in this photo though.
You can put a diesel exhaust in the sea, and STILL run. I'm not going to comment on this subject anymore...like you it's got boring.
Sadly, it's you that is boring , Garry. Your comments are, generally, too inane and childish. Maybe you can't help it...
Well said Renee I agree with your comments he doesn't know
when to keep his mouth shut he's been a spark, a bargee, a lorry driver, what will he be next god ? I don't think so
Renee and wiganner are made up names. Stop being fools.
I've forgot more than you both will ever know on any subject.
