That it has been raining hard in Tarvin recently is hardly news. However I can't be the only person who has watched the weather forecast on the TV and seen the heavy pulses of really heavy rain congregate on the Welsh hills and leave Tarvin a little less soggy. I have sent a silent "thank you" to the Welsh for taking so much of the wet weather.

However, what goes up must come down. On a recent visit to Llangollen it was fascinating to see the volume of water over the Horseshoe Falls and through the town centre. The noise, fury and power of the water was quite humbling, as was the determination shown by some seemingly flimsy plant in the river bed to hang on. Their roots must run very deep.

A resident of one of the houses by the river bank did say that the flow of water down the river is regulated at the reservoir at Bala, so that the river never rose too high. All I can say is that there must be an awful lot of water in that reservoir and that the Dee should be roaring away for some weeks yet.

Time to break out the Kayak perhaps?
