Why I am building an ark (perhaps)
Apparently London is about to flood (in which case I assume low lying areas of Essex are facing the same fate). So says LondonPrayer.Net (via Tall Skinny Kiwi).

Several have felt that London will experience a flood, which will affect the financial security and structure of the city. It is also interesting to note that 40 days from the sighting of the whale and this ‘sign of Jonah’, which falls on 1st March is also the 4 days of the high Spring tides in the Thames. These high spring tides will be from the 1-4th March this year.
I have a non-working campervan and a few sundry items such as a washing basket, a hat stand and a clothes rack. If it starts raining I’ll be heading outside to see what sort of ark I might be able to construct.
If it happens, well, fair goes to them. If not then I hope we’ll see some good old Old Testament stonings of the kind reserved for false prophets.
This seems to fall into the same category as the Canvey Island refinery explosion and the destruction of South Essex by the exploding WW2 ammo ship. These were stories that were repeated every year, completed with maps showing the destruction of Essex from Shoeburyness, to Canvey and beyond, in the Southend and district papers.
If it does happen then think of the rise in property prices that will follow. Parts of Islington and Balham will become prime locations for waterfront dwellings.
Interesting… especially after yesterdays news about the water table in the South East being lower than usual (what with it being the driest winter on record!) and about councils trying to get Hose Pipe bans in force in February! Of course no-doubt the Fundies will tell us this is so God’s miraculous flood will be even more of a miracle??? Do I sound cynical?
Why not lash the hat stand (vertically) to the roof of the campervan, stick a cushion on the top it, climb up there with the washing basket full of snacks, and a favourite novel (or the Bible, of course) and see how it pans out?
Kristen, what a cool idea. I can just see Dave as a kind of 21st century St Simon Stylites.
I’m just going to stockpile rocks. That’s easier, and more satisfying if all goes well.
Gods judgement against my cynicism about this flood was to pelt me with lumps of ice whice delaying my train for 40 minutes.
Get yer lovely wellies! Specially produced in the Name of the Lord to protect the tooties of the elect!
