I had a very tiring, stressful journey, myself. A half hour walk in and then out of the village. An hour journey through flooded hills to get 8 miles. I am now exhausted and aching and feel like the Grinch.
It is not funny though is it? Those poor people facing Christmas or anything with that damage. Fortunately it was a lot of shop space rather than personal space but economically and creatively that is heartbreaking.
Human Spirit? My colleague Dan that waded in (his flat is above one of those shops).
My colleague (another) Dan that spent two hours to get in.
and it goes on and on. Love my job to work with such lovely people and in such a great community.
