So long summer

They were joking at the weekend that we would get a couple of days of glorious summer this week and that would be it.

OK, perhaps they were not entirely joking.

Two days of glorious sunshine in the North West on Monday and Tuesday came to a thunderous end overnight - still lightning and thunder in Whitehaven as I write.

I left an empty cup in the garden last night and it had more than an inch of rainwater in it at 8.30 am this morning.

Cockermouth school is closed today due to flood damage and Electricity NW says there are about a thousand homes without power in Carlisle.

Oh well, the sunshine was nice while it lasted ...
