There was quite a gathering at the bridge today. There were iphones and camcorders and proper cameras pointed at the scene above. The sight of our 'show field' dressed up as a wide, fast-flowing torrenty river was one to see and I'm pleased we ventured out with our neighbours to have a look but the whole thing makes me angsty.
I didn't like the dramatic change to our gentle landscape. I didn't like the noise the thousands of gallons of water made sleusching under the bridge. I didn't like the idea of the damage that water was doing to the bridge that we take for granted. A few months ago, J & E were in tractor tyres bobbing down here in a raft-race. I wasn't happy then and they were in three feet of water.
Let's hope the sun comes out soon - here in our little corner of Wiltshire and in the places more badly affected by this weather.
