Isn't it always the way...so easy to spend so much time worrying about natural disasters around the world that you can miss those happening right on the doorstep.
I know we have readers who live on the Somerset Levels and I just wanted to send good wishes and please do let us know how you are if you can. Watching the local news day after day you suddenly realise that all these villages and homes have now been underwater and cut off for three very long wet weeks, and with more rain and gale-force winds forecast for us all here in the West Country this weekend they must be living in dread. Now declared a 'major incident' it was awful to see flooded villages completely deserted and to hear that it could be weeks before the water subsides.
Yes. the novelty would wear off for me too.
