I'm sitting in my lounge, listening to the wind howl. At least the rain has stopped - for a while at least.
I can't put into words how devastated I feel for the people and communities affected by the unprecedented flooding in the Somerset Levels and the tidal onslaught on the south-west coast. If there was anything I could practically do to relieve the suffering of those affected, I would.
All I can do is pray for relief - from the wind, from the waves, and from the relentless creeping water.
Well - prayers have been known to move mountains; about time we started to work on the jet stream, don't you think?
