The Rain it Raineth Every Day

Barrow Park
After a week of rain a glorious sunny day and here are group of lads making the most of it on the 'all weather' pitch. The ducks are enjoying the unexpected lake that has appeared. Yes my local park is very wet. I came back with very muddy shoes.

Up in the Lakes rivers have broke their banks, homes have been flooded and the ground is so sodden that the water is pouring out of the fields onto the roads. They are advising caution on the roads so I thought I would stay close to home today.

Cumbria Live TV have a film of a rather wet trip on the roads around Grasmere and pictures of the rivers side walk that is now, well a river. Go and have a look here

More rain tomorrow apparently, but it is nice and warm with southerly winds so not all bad news.

You can have too much of a good thing! Floods are awful - it takes so long for everything to dry out. Miserable for those poor people especially with the ever-shortening days.

You are right the people in the middle of the floods have tough times ahead.
