At the Water Gate
An apt lesson from Nehemiah set for today ... Ezra reading the Law at the Jerusalem Water Gate. With all the water round here at the moment we need flippers in place of snowshoes. The rapid thaw has filled the ditches and many are overflowing onto our lanes. There are floods across some stretches of road that I've never seen inundated before. The area opposite the house and by the church luch gate looked like the Arctic this morning with large lumps of snow floating slowly across the tarmac. I wouldn't have been surprised to see a penguin sitting atop one of them.
