Windstorm [Feb. 25th, 2006|09:38 am]
Tony Grist
Last night's windstorm had me worrying about the roof.

Our plastic recycling boxes got blown all over the shop. I went and retrieved what I could, but one lid eluded me and proceeded to travel up and down the street all night. Every time it went past them, the neighbourhood dogs barked at it.

Brr, but it's cold this morning. I've had enough of this winter now. Please let it stop.

I complained of the cold on our way to the store today. Andrew, as per usual, announced that he was "too hot" whenever the wind wasn't gusting.

So it was nice to see this when I came back. "See? Someone else in Manchhester [well, close enough; I'm making a point here!] thinks it's cold, too!"

"Probably north Manchester," Andrew said.

"Well, actually ..."

"Ha! See?"

Still too cold here, no matter what he says.

Actually Oldham

Yes far too cold. For Chrissakes it's nearly March, let's be done with this winter weather!

I usually like windstorms, or any storms, but not when they are strong enough to tear off the roofing.

One awful night during a thunderstorm I heard a loud crack in the back yard and ran into the hall, thinking a tree was probably coming down on the house.

Instead it landed in the back yard--a huge oak tree, roots upended. Cost me plenty to have it cut up and taken away, because insurance only pays for damage to structures. Anything else is a convenient "act of God."

I did some "tree surgery" a few weeks back which should prevent that happening to us. We have a eucalyptus tree which was supposed to stop growing at about ten feet but which just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

I think Brown overstepped the mark in appropriating the thesis of THBATHG. On the other hand I reckon he did Leigh and Baigent a favour by rekindling interest in their book.

I'll be following this case with interest.
