I normally edit out this lifebelt station when I am taking pictures down by the river because the bright red stands out like a sore thumb among the willow trees. However, today its useful to make a point about the depth of the flooding. The base is usually about a metre above the river level. I took the picture on my iPhone while on my early morning sunrise dog walk. Not that early actually, sunrise was about 8a.m.
Fortunately the weather forecast is good for the next few days. No rain but sunshine and frosts so maybe the levels will drop.
