Calm Between the Storms


This is St Ives, Cornwall (taken yesterday) - the town nearest to where I live. You wouldn't think that this is the place that has had at least four bouts of storm and tidal flooding over the past few days. There has been film footage of water lapping across the roads and into pubs, clubs, restaurants and shops. We are being continually battered by terrible weather, interspersed with blue skies and gorgeous sunshine.  I drove down yesterday to see the state of the town: indeed, there were mopping up operations in hand, clearing dead sandbags and trying to shore up (pardon the pun) business premises with planks etc.

Anyway, the rest of St Ives in February are at my flickr page
