Its been a wild and wet day up at Pry House. At daybreak the River Swale was high and raging. All day the driving wind has sent horizontal curtains of rain down the dale and the river has continued to rise steadily. It could easily burst its banks if the rain doesn't ease soon.
Our weather changes so quickly at the head of the dale. Yesterday bright and beautiful, today not fit for man nor beast. The wind has howled and the rain lashed all day so instead it is a case of being productive indoors. Mince pies are in the freezer, scones made for tea, a pan of soup ready to help warm up frozen husband when he finally comes in and all brass polished.
