If you're in the UK I don't need to tell you how bad the weather has been for weeks now. Even if you don't live here it probably hasn't escaped your notice that we're having a hard time. Our house has been flooded three times in the past so I have every sympathy with beleaguered souls across the country right now. It's a horrible feeling to find your home invaded by water and unless it's happened to you, most people wouldn't be aware that it's not just rainwater or river water but filthy stuff from overloaded drains or the kind that flows from saturated fields complete with pesticides, fertilisers and animal waste. Urrgghr!
This is the local river today. Looks rather like oxtail soup!
The little troll bridge which we use to reach Laura's house normally has about a metre of space between the metal supports and the surface of the river but is now partially submerged.
I wonder how long snowdrops can survive under water?
Something tells me this footpath won't see many folk pass through - not unless they are wearing waders!
Don't worry about us - we are keeping our heads above water and keeping busy. We've only lost one fence panel and two panels of the roof of the cow shed so far so it could be worse! I'll be posting work very soon so thanks for reading and please drop by again soon. Linda x
