We watched with dismay as the Cumbrian floods were shown on the TV. So many favourite places suffering such devastation. We are now in the area for a quick visit and whilst the water may have receded the waterline is still so very evident, as are the road closures, the skips outside houses and the brutal reality of it all hits you like a hammer blow. The pub in the village is shut as it was flooded out. The village shop suffered a similar fate. The hotel is also closed. Everywhere there are piles of mud, tree trunks, rubble. Evidence of the muck left by the raging torrent that ripped through the countryside and the communities. Yes it was awful on TV but oh my it's far worse in reality.
