a poetical response following close observation: pebbles for rivers of stones
I know about that 'wettest drought on record' comment. I was driving through standing water on the road for most of my two commutes yesterday. Where is all the water going if it's not filling up the rivers? (incidentally - the Derwent was nearly over its banks here a week ago - but we're facing a hosepipe ban!)
Nice one. I guess we do need the rain, they say it will take more than a day or two of heavy rain to make up the shortfall - not 'politically correct' to say so but half the problem is that there are so many people using the water now!
