'Mystic Met' and the floods of April

At the confluence of the River Severn and the River Avon, Tewkesbury sits on a flood plain. The Environment Agency, presently monitoring the situation, has urged residents to stay out of the water and has soothed them by advising that a swamped Tewkesbury is perfectly normal. I'm sure they're grateful to hear that.

Meanwhile, another government agency, the 'Mystic Met', promised Britain that April, May, and June would be drier than average. April, which has proved the wettest April in more than a century, looked to the Met to be the driest of the three.

The Met has also told us top expect global warming, so I guess we live in hope.
