Burst its banks all over Leeds today. Thankfully not too much disruption for me, but i think a lot of people at work were screwed...

That's a lot of water there.

indeed - to give you an idea, that top shot is usually only just covering the bottom of the riverbed - about 4-6inches of water, and the depth here is about 10 feet.

Bloomin' 'eck!! I saw some of that on the news last night, it looks fairly crazy. How does the town function around it?

Well, thankfully the disruption wasn't *too* bad in the middle of town - things just slow down significantly

Leeds' transport authority (note, NOT first, who are an absolute shower of shambles) are really great at getting information collected and distributed to those signed up:

West Yorkshire Metro

So when alerts come out people are pretty good at staggering the joyrneys home. Rather than just staggering home, which happens most of the time ;)
