It might be windy here today but at least it is dry. Looking at the pictures of widespread flooding in England and Wales makes you realise how fortunate we are. When it rains here, it comes down in buckets full but it rarely lasts for long. Then the sun comes back out and everywhere returns to normal. In Britain, when it rains it seems to go on for days, rivers burst their banks and low lying land is flooded. No sooner do people recover from one deluge, they get another and another.
Forecasts say that the rain in Britain should ease but will be replaced by one of the harshest winters the country has experienced in 100 years. There is even talk of temperatures as low as 20 degrees below freezing in some parts of the country.
We might be facing a severe financial crisis in Spain but at least we are relatively warm and dry for the moment!
