Flooding #3

Thankfully the wind has subsided overnight and for now the rain has eased up although it is noticeably colder. Whilst the situation in our immediate vicinity is better, considerable rain fell yesterday in the Lorton/Buttermere area and this has to drain into the River Cocker which in turn feeds into the Derwent. At present the water level across the fields looks slightly less than 6.00pm yesterday. The fields are doing what nature desugned them to do - flood, and at least here the water has somewhere to go.
