Two Rainbows and Floods Possible

Two Rainbows and Floods Possible
One of our North Abingdon correspondents has found a web page showing the level of the River Thames at Abingdon Lock – rising steadily again.

There was a rainbow over the Upper Reaches, on Sunday, during one of a number of showers.

The night before, and after, there was heavy rain. Any remaining snow has been washed away, and this evening the Ock Valley path is already under a few inches of water again.

Another rainbow was visible, on Sunday, over the road beyond Lodge Hill, currently closed by a landslide.

That is halfway between Oxford and Abingdon.

It is not a way we normally walk but there is the opportunity now that it is almost car free.

    The Environment Agency website showing the lock water height can be tuned to wherever you are, I have it showing me the water levels of the Ock. I am pleased to say that this morning it is still showing a long way from flooding. We were put on flood alert again on saturday morning.
