The wettest drought on record

Lots of weather lately

Here in Kent, in the south-east of England, we’re experiencing a drought. There have been two very dry winters in southern and eastern parts of the country, with water companies reporting the driest two years for a century or so.

With this in mind, two weeks ago a hosepipe ban was introduced in Kent and other parts of the country, with the drought spreading northwards. Fines of up to £1000 can be imposed on individuals who insist on using hosepipes.

Far Sighted Ban Works Wonders

Since the ban was introduced, it hasn’t stopped raining.

I believe it’s the wettest drought on record.
