I have to admit I knew nothing about the 3 weeks of rain north of London to Scotland. I hardly watched the news at all in December because of my cold. I just heard on NPR that Cumbria in the Lake District is being especially hard hit. That's the home of the Beatrix Potter museum that houses over 450 of her watercolors! It was hit by floods in 2010 but this is the worst in over 100 years. How heartbreaking to hear about such awful conditions inn the country and land we all love. Read more current news here. Sending my prayers.
