Compared to rest of the country we got off very lightly but on 23rd December there was flash flooding on Dowson Road. The pavement was completely awash and pedestrians had a dreadful time.

See the scene looking in the opposite direction on Hyde DP Xtra.

A contribution to Monday Mellow Yellows and Blue Monday.


  1. ...and that looks mighty COLD!!!

    Happy New Year

  2. Great shot. We also have rainy days here.
    Happy New Year.

  3. Oh, now that is a big splash, indeed! Luckily, you were not too close by. ;-)
    Thank you for sharing your world with us, all those years, and best wishes for a Happy New Year,
    (I voted too late for Picture of the Year. No matter, they are all winners, anyway.)

  4. When I first looked at your shot, I giggled. Car Wash sign makes it funny.

    Thanks for playing today.

    Happy Blue Monday, Gerald.

  5. Water like this is evil. I'll take my snow.

  6. Neat capture ~ Happy New Year to you ~ carol, xxx

  7. So many parts of the country are experiencing unusual weather this year. I do not like rainy, cold days.

  8. When I see a large vehicle approaching a wet bit of road I try to move as far into the pavement as possible to try to escape the worst of the splashing. It never helps...:-)

    Great picture...I'm happy not to be close by...

  9. I wish you a fantastic 2014 Gerald! ;-)
