Unfortunately Cumbria is in the news. Here in Carlisle it is dire. I and my property are unaffected but as a church we are giving assistance to the needy. We are going round the streets with hot drinks and bacon butties. Most people can now get back to visit their homes but there is no electricity. The damage is terrible and many people just want to talk and talk. They are in shock. Its raining and blowing again this evening. Nothing like it was but people are scared and it brings back memories.
