New month, all change

After a month and a half of hot, dry weather, we’ve finally got some serious rain, and more forecast.  It’s still pretty warm (and muggy), but now with a bit of luck the big swathes of brown on the moors will revert to a healthy green, and the decline in the reservoirs will be halted.  We’re a long, long way from the summer floods of the last couple of years, but at least we’re no longer on course for a possible drought.

Wonder if it’s enough to make the river locally a more exciting swim?
