Well, nothing like Cyclone Yasi or the snow in the States here (thank goodness) but the start of February has seen gale force winds and heavy rain across Scotland and the North of England. I met a friend for lunch and we decided to go to the Half Moon Café in Roberts Park, which gamely remains open during the winter and therefore seems worthy of support. It was quite a hard walk down to the park in the strong wind. The River Aire is flooding its banks and thundering over the weir by the New Mill. I thought it worthy of a picture even though the light was poor. I battled to keep a reasonably steady hand on my camera, as the wind was buffeting me around.
