nuclear terms, the long, cold winter in Ross had a half-life
of about 7 days.
These photos of after the meltdown are really just for our
'Wyenot' record of River Wye levels. The views were taken
Sunday lunchtime at high water, from Wilton and from the
Prospect. At around midnight, temperatures dropped again
to around zero Celsius and in Homs Road, as the flood water
flowed from the drain, it was freezing, making the road
surface extremely difficult to negotiate.
have been working overtime during the snow and then the
flood and this has prompted yet another stream of letters
telling me that the clock on the camera located at the White
Lion is wrong. I am aware of this - it is an am / pm thing
- the router is running 12 hours (and a few minutes) fast.
will try to get this sorted but sorting it requires a combination
of several important factors, all of which which have to
occur simultaneously, starting a chain reaction. Firstly,
I need to be at the White Lion. Then, I need to remember
that the web cam clock is running fast and finally, somebody
needs to be there with access to the room in which the web
cam is located. My memory being what it is, the chances
of all of these events occurring at one time are about as
remote as the chances of a planet forming close enough to
a yellow dwarf star, and with a moon orbiting it at just
the right distance to create tides in the planet's oceans,
allowing carbon based life forms to evolve in those oceans
and find their way onto land, then evolve further - enough
to fly to and investigate the moon which brought about their
existence................... It could happen
- but starting the sequence would require divine intervention.
