Photos of the floods

I took a few pictures of the lake overflowing at Bowness-on-Windermere on Saturday. You can see for yourselves just how much water there is everywhere!

What can you say? I remember visiting Boscastle two weeks before the floods. We were there two weeks to the day prior to that awful event. Our car was in the car park and would likely have been washed out to sea as we also might have been. And then a year on we returned and to see the flood marks on the walls of the shops where they'd noted how high the waters had got, in one shop to the ceiling of the ground floor, was just unimaginable. I do feel for the people affected especially as I heard many aren't even insured because the excesses are higher than restocking the stores.

It's awful, isn't it? They're used to rain up here, of course, but not when it's measured in feet. Lots of mopping up and slopping out going on at the moment. :(
