MOPPING UP FLOODS

There’s been flooding on a great scale here abouts. The rain came in sometime Wednesday night, eventually, trickling down by elevenses this morning …Friday.

The river speed makes me dizzy to watch it, it is swollen and is, fortunately, subsiding.   Farm houses are surrounded by a lake where previously there had been a field.  Sheep in other pastures skirt around rivers to get to sodden grassy edges.  Low lying roads are barely passable.

A dry spell would be valuable, just a day or so, to allow the lying waters to drain.  Whether the rivers in both main towns will calm down that quickly is debatable, they have already burst their banks.  The amount of water spilled from them will take a lot of ‘mopping up’.
