30 years ago today a storm hit the UK, many lives were lost and much damage was done.
I have little memory of it, 30 years ago I had just got married, left home and was pregnant with my first child. .no wonder really that a storm seamed to feature so little in my memory.
Today, 30 years on another storm is on the horizon. This one has a name, ” Hurricane Ophellia ”
I have just come back from walking the dog and I have to admit it’s rather eerie outside, there is a strange red glow in the sky, a very mild almost muggy feel to our October weather and the sound of a strong wind approaching.
With weather like this I had better stay in
then……That’s not me
. ..but I might get to work faster today if the winds behind me
Yesterday there was thunder and lightening in Birmingham. Not my favourite weather to say the least..
I have never liked lightening, this probably started when as a young child my mum used to encourage us to hide in the cupboard under the stairs for safety in storms!
I am not crazy about flying either but a few years ago I had both of my least favourite things together, a lightening storm on a flight back from Egypt.
My husband at the time encouraged me at one stage to look out of the window , when I did I saw about 5 large balls of light bouncing slowly around the night sky in the distance …
UFOS / lightening balls? ???
