The current weather is not especially photogenic, there’s not even fog or mist to add atmosphere. Yet again the weather has got stuck in a rut and I am reminded of the Nursery Rhyme that goes: ‘rain, rain go away, come again another day’. Perhaps we could revise the second line of that couplet and write: ‘don’t come until April’. That would be plenty early enough for the thousands who have been flooded out of their homes in the last few weeks.
I’ve been looking back through the archives at images from January in previous years and found this from January 2010 .
Looking at the forecast for next week, the temperature is predicted to drop with drier weather but whether that is a temporary reprieve or a longer-term return to winter as we knew is open to question. We can only hope.
