My thoughts go out to the family of Pc Bill Barker.
My thoughts are also with those people in nearby Cockermouth, who also had terrible flooding last week. These shots show the morning after, when the waters had gone down.
They were lapping the first floor windows and some people had to punch their way out of the roof. I saw footage of a yarn shop with yarn bobbing about. I can't help but wonder what will happen about next year's Woolfest. The venue is fine, but will the town be able to cope with visitors?

This is Wendy, the lovely owner of Lancaster Yarn Shop, Old Pennsylvania Pike, Intercourse PA. Behind her are a pair of socks she entered in the county show which won (hence the ribbon!)
It was a lovely trip and I would really like to explore more. Much as I love the big cities, it was brilliant to see parts of more rural America.
