Now for some summer rain

August 9, 2018

Much needed rain
The long hot summer cooled in the last 36 hours, and this evening hailstones fell, followed by a shower that caused ground water to collect in the usual places. That included the bus lay by on High Street, in Abingdon;
Much needed rain
the end of the Abbey Close near that pointed thing celebrating the millennium;
Much needed rain
and a trolley park in the Waitrose carpark.
Much needed rain
Over recent weeks the countryside has seen a contrast between the oaten grass and green plants with deeper roots. But two trees are suffering a premature autumn at the recently rebuilt Abbey Meadow play area. Perhaps their roots have not had a chance to get established.

More rain is forecast.

    The bus layby on high street is an embarrassment. Nowhere for the elderly to sit, and and it is in need of some serious redecoration.

    Although we pay for the upkeep of such things JB, we are in fact expected to carry out such work ourselves.
