The River Annan was well over its banks at Wamphray today. The river is/should be on the left, behind the trees.
It was my intention to get up early this morning and do some shopping before the New Year holiday. But when the alarm went off, I turned over and went back to sleep - the joys of retirement. Probably just as well, as if I had got out, I may not have got home! The rain just got worse all morning. The radio reported that the A701 was blocked at Moffat, and the wee road that comes into Wamphray over the Jocksthorn Bridge looked like this at midday.
I hesitate to think how those I know with homes downriver have fared. Not a happy thought at the end of the year.
