Handbags   (The sad, the bad and the ugly. Non-productive stuff here.)

We were up in the Lake District last week, staying near Grasmere.
Locally Grasmere Lake, Rydal Water and Windermere are looking normal as regards water level.
However, Thirlmere which supplies Manchester’s water is decidedly low.
I would say 20 plus feet below normal level and probably at about 60 to 70% capacity.
There are islands sticking up above the water which are normally submerged.
So there is a visible sign that things are not as they should be.
That said, there are millions of litres of water cascading down from the fells which are helping to fill it up.
