Storm Desmond

Storm Desmond deposited over 100mm of rain on us in about 36 hours, about the same amount of rain we’d usually have in the whole month of December.

River Gweestion in flood

The river, which lies a couple of miles from our house, usually flows between the two rows of trees.

This is usually a field!

The road was impassible for about 24 hours till the flood waters went down a little. I’ve never seen it closed before.

With climate change we can only expect more of these events.
