After a week of wingeing about the rain here in Northumberland, perhaps it is time to think about the poor souls in The Lake District.
I know Keswick very well and Cockermouth and Kendal reasonably so. The conditions over there must be dreadful. We can only speculate as to how the family of the drowned policeman are coping with their personal tragedy.
Yet more rain here this morning, the clouds sweeping over from the West and the Cumberland Fells.
My day was brightened not only by this rainbow but by meeting my cousin, his wife and one of his daughters for lunch. We only seem to meet up every few years so it was good to catch up. They are off to a 'Yes' concert in Newcastle tonight before heading back to Manchester over the weekend.
Remember 'Yes'? now that is going back rather too many years, to my days at college!
