I rang Mary to say my mother wouldn't be going to the WI and we talked about the weather- as English people do. She told me all the little animals in the children's zoo at The Hop Farm had drowned in the Christmas floods. Only the llamas and ponies were saved. Her son lives in Yalding beside a road that flooded. If one more 4X4 had tried to drive through it- he said- the house would have been swamped.
It rained overnight and the paths are under water again.
I wonder if we're going to get any snow this winter?
