THERE is no escape from the stormy weather we have been experiencing for nearly two months.

But despite the gale-force winds and the seemingly constant downpour, Dorset residents are battling through it.

In Swanage, volunteers armed with brooms and brushes kept floodwater away from premises as the town was hit with some of the worst weather it’s seen in 30 years.

After all this dismal rain and atrocious conditions, we should all be praying for a sunshine-filled spring and summer. We deserve it.
