After the storm

The calm after the storm. By the time I was up and around this morning with my camera, the water levels in the Annan were already going down, although that is not obvious from this photo, looking north from the garden!

That's the river behind the trees on the left. What was different from normal was the roar of the water.

I took this pic from the bottom of the garden.

Downstream from Skip.

Where is the actual river?

All very well to take these pics of the power of water, but not so enjoyable if your home is threatened. Sympathy for those, as the news today has been full of horror stories of residential and commercial properties affected.

For me, there was only a little inconvenience as access to the Jocksthorn Bridge was blocked.

The water had been very much higher during the night, and was still flowing from the field over the road mid morning.
