Oh,Cristina,that is so bad.We have had torrential rain and gales for the past 4 days,but but with living among hills and valleys,we haven't had flooding where we are.It is devastating for you..and I hope it subsides soon..I can't remember it ever being so bad,weatherwise,as this year..We are all so sick of it,aren't we?and the damage it causes,not just here but worldwide..

Oh poor you, we had terrible weather at the end of last week, gales and rain. The weekend however, has been lovely. Overcast but dry, and SO still.
Hope you dry up soon!

Oh dear - I'm so sorry you've got all that to cope with. I hope the floods don't come near your home - that would be dreadful! :-((

Hope you haven't been hit by the flooding, Cristina. We didn't get heavy rains that were forecast a few days ago but we have had terrible winds. This year we have had no flooding - or should I say, the river hasn't overflowed its banks. As there is plenty of room on either side of the river the fields get flooded but the town itself never does.

oh my what a winter - lets hope we have a lovely summer. (bet we don't)

So sorry to hear about the floods Cristina, hope it hasn't come near to your lovely house and garden. All the snow we had this winter followed by the rains has really bogged up the soil and left nowhere for the water to go. It's an awful time for those affected by the flooding.

Not a good experience....hope things are settling down now. I saw the report on the news last night about all the flooding...it must be devestating for the farmer who owns the field. Hope your horse is safe.
