    to flood

    Are these three sentences possible? Do they have the same meaning?

    1) When I look at these photographs, memories come flooding back.
    2) When I look at these photographs, memories flood back.
    3) When I look at these photographs, memories flood over me.

    They are all OK. I wouldn't use #3.
