Here in the UK we are experiencing terrible extremes of weather. In addition to large areas of flooding, we have had high winds and storms. However, occasionally the sun peeks out for a while and signs of Spring appear. This illustrates why British people talk about the weather so much, as it is so changeable and surprising!
I expect you have seen footage on television of the flooded Thames Valley. It is a relief to know that we are safe from the water, as we live on a hill, but I am very conscious of the river which is very near by, and I really feel for all the people who are affected by the floods.
