water water everywhere…

December 20, 2012


I thought I’d go for a walk this morning. It was raining – nothing much new there , except it’s been raining for two days solid and it’s getting boring. In fact it’s been raining all year and I’ve had enough. The ground’s sodden, the sky’s leaden, the rabbit hasn’t been outside for two months. It’s ridiculous.

I headed off for the cycle path wearing Arlo’s wellies, because mine have sprung a leak, and discovered that there weren’t many directions I could travel in.

The ride was high and this, coupled with all the water running off the moors and surrounding fields, meant that everywhere was flooded.

Not really dramatically flooded, but flooded enough to make walking pretty much

The tree’s still stuck on the weir too and showing no sign of being floated off – floated isn’t really the right word – spewed might be better or disgorged : the noise of the weir was tremendous, but the tree remained resolute.


I watched for a bit and then came home and had a cup of coffee and a pain au chocolate instead of a walk.
