The last couple of days have been almost okay. Yesterday was misty and rainy, but not torrential and today was glorious for a few hours. Tomorrow is set to be terrible again but here are some images for me to hang on to as we are battered again.
This bronze age hut circle seems to be having some persistent flooding issues:
This one too:
Even when the rain has stopped, the ponies' coats dry in clumps as though still wet:
Actually, I think this one still is wet:
Tornado sizes up Snippet:
I love the different shades of grey in this:
Exercise while you can....
Okay - if you say so:
The light today was extraordinary, and picked out all the contours in the landscape
Jack found a sheep's horn
We had a crow in the garden which is very unusual - they usually stick to the moor:
Trigger had the day down with the Madams and we all got out more than expected which was lovely, in preparation for hiding inside tomorrow. Who'd be a pony eh?
We had yet another bad night, with a power cut yesterday evening coinciding with an impromptu plumbing emergency. One of the in-line valves under the kitchen sink failed and was spurting water out into the flickering torchlight. M came home to find me in a state of some panic whilst OB sat calmly doing a sudoku puzzle with a candle at the table. Power back by about 8.00pm and water flow stemmed, I was delighted to get to bed. I hate to even ask the question - what next?
Keep safe all of you in the throws of bad weather and don't forget, if you want to be entered into the draw, leave a comment on the last post. Many of you have already and OB will draw the name out on Sunday or Monday, depending when I have time to write all the names on scraps of paper. So, until next time, here's naughty Jack with his sheep's horn.
