After a few days of pleasant and dry weather, I woke up this morning to the sound of rainfall. That heavy shower was accompanied by a couple more outbursts during the day, and there may be more on the way. Given the water situation here, this is good news.
But poor Britain – which does not, typically, have a water shortage – is suffering with real winter weather.
Sister-in-law Sarah sent me the picture above, showing her parents’ back garden, deep in suburbia in London. Beautiful to look at, great to visit, but not so nice to live through. I hope better weather turns up soon there.
