When The Fields Turned To Water

King of the Hill took these photos of the submerged moor along the floor of the valley near us on a recent walk.

Even on our hilltop, the grass of the lawn squelches under foot. With the valley floors saturated, there is nowhere for the water to drain to. It has been a very wet winter so far.

  1. We saw so much water in the fields when we were in the UK, you could see that the ground was completely saturated and no more water could be absorbed. Christina

    • We’ve never known it so wet around here. When the tide’s up, some of the lanes become almost impassable in places. And yes, the wind is fierce since yesterday.

  3. A most sad and worrying sight isn’t it? We traveled eastwards for Christmas by train passing by miles and miles of submerged fields. I had made the same journey less than a month before but it had deteriorated even further. Let’s hope for a cold dry spell soon.
