Why are we, as a nation, so unprepared for any extreme of weather even when it occurrs with some frequency, everything is reactive not proactive, there is no preemptive works carried out. The councils/water authorities decided decades ago to stop clearing drains.

It's funny; I remember an interview with the CEO of Gatwick (From Bishop BTW). He was asked why the Airport had bought snow clearing equipment for the runway when we don't get heavy snow falls in the UK. He replied, "What like the heavy snow fall last year and now this year?"
