Tamar running fast and high
It's certainly been a very dreary day here in the Westcountry but this evening the rain has relented. I have just been down the lane to view the Tamar following the couple of inches of precipitation we have endured today. As expected the river was looking extremely brown and had broken its banks in places. Even with my wellingtons on it was a bit iffy to go on down to the weir and reluctantly I turned back. The BBC forecast had been spot on regarding this weather! When people move to this neck of the woods they will soon realise that a pair of wellies needs to be right at the top of their shopping list!
