From Highclere House (21/1/2021)
The rain and hail hammer my window pane.
Leaving a rolling river down Arkles Lane!
On the central reservation, not much green.
Just swathes of muddy puddles to be seen.
Tonight is match night, so traffic cones to lay.
Seems a bit early with kick off 12 hours away!
I'm not sure why football even goes ahead.
But then again money talks, it has to be said.
A dog in the park, shakes water of its back.
The dark clouds look set for another attack!
A line of drenched cars wait patiently to dry.
It could be a while judging by the heavy sky!
The Covid Test Centre remains firmly in place.
Reminding us all of the uncertain times we face.
