A very dry winter followed by almost incessant rain for goodness knows how long. Where will it all end?
Many cars were turning round at the flood. Some, me included, in Tom’s little VW Polo slowly edged our way through. A few drove through at speed with the wash nearly covering their bonnet and spluttered on. One very stupid lady started to come into the flood whilst I was driving through, but since I was driving in the middle of the road and had no intention of stopping or moving in to the deeper water she was forced to stop. A wicked part of me was hoping one of these loonies would conk out and have to wade to safety when I had my camera handy for taking pics. No such luck!
The river you can just see through the hedge is actually the road!
On a happier note a glimpse of blue sky taken through our office window as I was uploading this post.
Followed 15 minutes later by this...
I just hope that a hot dry spell is forecast for Le Petit-Pressigny and it’s environs for late July and August. Then the summer won’t have been a complete washout.
P.S. Did I mention ducks? You'll have to wait as for some reason Blogger has stopped uploading pics!
