Bad Weather

Bad weather in the UK today. We're having wind gusts up to 80 MPH. At least one person has died.

I just bought new glasses a few weeks ago and they were blown away and I couldn't find them because I was blind. Fortunately I've a backup pair.

My umbrella, was useless in the rain and many people, including myself, repeatedly had to grab railings or poles to keep from getting blown over. At one point I heard a lady scream and turned around and saw that she had been blown over while crossing the street at a busy intersection. Fortunately she struggled to her feet and got to the other side of the road as I was too far away to help her.

Next week temperatures are expected to drop significantly with snow and ice to follow, to be followed shortly by a Labor inquiry into why the police have not given the weather an Asbo.
