One can relax more in a raging storm:
As she spoke heavy wind and rain were sweeping eastwards across the south coast, with gusts topping 50mph and Camborne in Cornwall seeing 10mm of rain, almost half an inch, in one thundery hour.
The worst was expected to hit overnight across the south west and on Saturday morning in the south east, leading to dangerous driving conditions. She said: “We are looking at gusts of 65 to 75mph in counties south of the M4. The strongest might reach 80mph.”
The storm was the most fierce of the autumn so far, she added.
What is it about this sort of weather which gets us in? What is it about bare poles and leafless trees, muffling up and going down to the raging sea in the storm? Is this strange or understandable?
Why am in my best mood in dangerous or very dark conditions? Are you like this?
