Minal in Flood

20200217171258

 

I suppose we are lucky in Minal, compared with much of the country, especially Wales and the North West but the spectacular flooded water meadows along the valley demonstrate how even our community is affected by climate change and extreme weather condiditons.

The attached pictures give an indication of this and are certainly the highest water levels most of us long term residents have ever witnessed.  But what about other exterme weather.  Do any of our older residents have any memories or pictures of memorable events?  Such as the winters of 1947 or 1963? Or any other weather extrememes. We'd all love to hear about them.
