After the hottest summer on record, with only the very occasional light shower this autumn, at long last we have had some heavy and continuous rain.
Normally we complain about too much of the ‘wet stuff’ but our reservoirs are very very low. So with luck they are starting to refill.
But they have a long way to go to reach the fill mark, as you can see from the image of Carsington Water, just a week ago today. Look at the height of the dam wall on the horizon…and those stones in the foreground, they would be well underwater under normal conditions
