Storms? We want one too!

Golly gosh, well looky here:

What fun, it does seem as if I’m right in its path here – quick check of the local area says just under 50 mph, so there’ll be some branches to clear away later.

You know that joke about plastic garden chairs tipping over?  After the last winds, I looked down on the yard and guess what? Yep – they’d both fallen over.

Of course, one hopes this is not a Michael Fish forecast on my part:

      Can’t hear you, too much noise out there. It’s a bit windy currently.

    Well at least you’re not very likely to get to THIS level:

      Look up the North Sea surge of 1953. 2,551 killed (1,836 in the Netherlands, 307 in England, 28 in Belgium, 19 in Scotland, 361 at sea).

    The U. S. does not corner the market on bad weather. Bad storms are not partial. Devistation is not either. They believe all is fair game, if they get aholt of ye.

    Hunker down for safe keeping England.

    Mr Market Ticker brings his usual sceptical view to the storm. “Category 5, my arse” would just about sum it up.
