Water levels at some of our reservoirs are down & there’s a 3 month ‘heatwave’ on the way

Commentary By: Albert Mascheroni

You want logic, I gave it to you. But no one wants scripture…I say buy water bc I’ve seen what’s coming, but you don’t care for anything outside of sound logic. So your resources won’t last. Even if you wised up & listened to me long enough to stock up a little, rely only on the strength of your arm & the strength of your “apocalypse ready friends”, then you already failed, hilariously failed.

Beasts will take your supplies & raid your cabinets for medicines. They will not only take your guns, but shame you as you hold your 5 shooter pistol against their numbers & weapons. Goodness forbid you fire your weapons at anyone, you’ll only complement your sorrow.

Walking Dead…then you’ll ask for scripture.

And the Christians that say they are Christian but are not seasoned w/the word…but not for lack of reading only, but for rejecting it when when someone tries to teach it to you, as it is written. Preferring your own teachers, quoting man’s worldly wisdom, referencing to their novels & pages…you might as well pick of up the Tao of Winnie the Pooh bc that bear’s got more wisdom…you’ve fated yourself to being naked & afraid…nothing like the show.

I’ve done my due diligence.

One of the main reservoirs that supplies Manchester’s water is looking dried up and cracked – but bosses are urging us not to panic. An alarming set of images taken over the weekend at Thirlmere in the Lake District show cracked earth and mud where the water is normally up to 40 metres deep. The 3.7mile lake brings water to Manchester via the pioneering 96-mile long Thirlmere Aquaduct.

According to United Utilities, Thirlmere and nearby Haweswater reservoir are currently at about 68 per cent capacity. That’s 4pc down on last week, and almost 10pc down on the same time last year when stocks were at 77pc.View image on Twitter

Crikey. Just because the reservoir is low suddenly it’s Costa del Dovestone.
Seriously United Utilities would I am sure want me to say please don’t treat your reservoir like a beach and definitely no swimming etc

Thirlmere’s water level is almost five metres below the top level. Greater Manchester has been enjoying relatively dry and sunny weather for weeks, prompting some to wonder if emergency water conserving measures, such as a hosepipe ban, could be on the way. Popular Twitter account Manchester Weather said significant rain isn’t likely until next week, adding:

“Never seen my garden so dry!” One follower replied: “Hosepipe ban soon!”

And there are also reports of low water levels up in Saddleworth, encouraging day-trippers to go swimming despite the signs warning against it. At the end of last month, the Saddleworth Independent newspaper tweeted an image of a ‘disappearing’ duck pond in Uppermill which has left local wildlife high and dry. It comes as forecasters are predicting a three-month summer heatwave. The national weather service is warning emergency services, transport leaders, business chiefs and councils of the risks of a hotter than normal three months.

A Met Office spokesman said: “For June to August, above-average temperatures are more likely than below-average temperatures. “The probability the UK average temperature for June to August will fall into the warmest of our five categories is 40pc. The coldest of our five categories is around 5pc. “The likelihood of above-average temperatures is greater than usual.”

But a spokesperson for United Utilities insisted the water levels at Thirlmere are not as worrying as the photographs might suggest and no hosepipe bans are planned at the moment. The company says although Thirlmere stocks are down, overall water levels for the region are at 83 per cent, around the same as last year and that water supplies can be moved around to where they are needed most. A spokesperson told the M.E.N:

“Following the wet winter our reservoir levels were very healthy at the start of the current dry period, and our regional reservoir stocks are now at 83pc, which is around the same as this time last year. “As usual we will be monitoring the situation throughout the summer, and we continue to use our integrated water network to move supplies around the region to balance the needs of customers and the environment. “Whatever the weather, we always encourage people to use water wisely, which helps saves on energy and money.”
