Start collecting Gopher wood

The weather has been truly spectacularly bad today. I drove from Fermanagh to Belfast and at times thought I was actually fording rivers. It is little better in Belfast itself with various roads flooded. As a fundamentalist I do believe that the Lord will never again flood the earth but I was wondering if anyone had any spare gopher wood? Incidentally was global warming not meant to make these islands a semi arid zone? Whilst I am not doubting the importance of protecting the environment, the dangers of global warming always seem to be being evidenced by whatever sort of weather we are having at the time. The fact that equally dire warnings of exactly the opposite sort of weather were promised a year or two ago seems to be conveniently forgotten.
