Rain, rain go away!

For over a month we have been battered by wind and rain.  For an island that normally is very dry, we now have too much water I think.  The little river at the bottom of the valley has been rushing down to the sea and twice has split its banks.

Normally it is just a trickle in the summer and autumn and can be forded easily in a car.  Fortunately we are
higher up but some properties in the valley have been flooded and filled with mud.  This happens because
people build without permission and of course proper checks and regulations are ignored!
