We are well into the months of gloom. It is warmer here than is usual for this time of year, but that is not all good news. The deep grey clouds hang over us. The skips have disappeared from the streets but many shops are still empty; still in silent shock after the floods. Winds race the cars up the main streets while the hardiest of off-season tourists still trudge the streets. Nonetheless, there is some beauty in the gloom.
