Wet weekend

Well hasn’t it been, we have been fortunate in that we have had no problems ourselves. Several of our friends however were stranded on Friday night and had to find places to stay, Saturday saw the town run out of bread and milk as deliveries could not get in and a few people in the town have been flooded. But it is in the surrounding villages that the problems have been worse. Many people are flooded, one family we know of having moved on Friday woke up Saturday morning to find all their boxes in water, a friends farm has lost crops but fortunately they managed to rescue all the cattle. Several people (and I’m sure more, some of whom I will probably know, but don’t know of yet) are going to be left homeless for a while. And for some it isn’t over yet as water travels down it is expected to get worse in some areas with rivers unable to cope with the extra water.
My heart and prayers go out for those of you who are struggling with uncertainty and loss due to this weather.

    Glad to hear you are dry (ish)- it’s been very odd being so far away when there are still so many of you down south who I’m still in touch with, and wondering how everyone is! Blessings
