We turn our attention to Gloucestershire, today



Today, and for the last few days, the people of Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire, have been suffering from heavy rains and most serious flooding. Poor Lynn, at Cheltenham Daily Photo has been experiencing the lack of water supply for her household daily needs and the magnificent Tewkesbury Abbey has been flooded. Businesses have been destroyed and families have had their lives washed away from under them.
Our hearts go out to all these poor people and we wish you every success in rebuilding your lives and re establishing your properties.

They've even sent the international Red Cross into Tewkesbury -- here it feels more like November or February than July.

I have watched scenes like this on our television with our evening news. It reminds me that the world has gone whacky in the weather department. We are in a 3 month drought.

I do hope our friend Lynn stays dry and everything goes back to normal soon.

Monica,
It is very worrying. With all the continuing rain, I don't know how things are going over there. Let's hope for the best.
Marie,
The Britanniques are having a rough trot n'est-pas?
Monsieur le Président,
Whacky it is true.
Travelphili,
I think it is wet, but not so tropical...
Gerald,
That is significant and scarey.
Calusarus,
Espérons que Valence demeure sèche et coffre-fort.

I appreciate this dedication very much, M et Mme, merci beaucoup! I am very touched. I am dry at my home but most in Tewkesbury are not. Your thoughts help indeed thank you x
