I love those mornings when it’s not quite frosty, but it’s cold enough to give a lovely chill in the air. After the stormy weather of yesterday, there was a surprising calm across the Valley this morning. The air was quite still, the rain had stopped and the ground actually looked pretty dry.

Elsewhere, people haven’t been so lucky. In Somerset a driver has died after getting stuck in flood waters. Parts of Oxford are under water. The Gales are predicted to hit 100mph in some areas. In a country where we’re not used to that, it’s quite scary.
