Sheets of rain!
Luckely it all turned out well, only two people died under a tree. Many got soaked while risking life and limb near the water edge, just to have a ‘Kodak Moment’ [stupid fools].
15 minutes ago a loud crack of thunder could be heard, and the heavens opened… enough rain to last a month. But that has gone down the drain too.
In the mean time I’ve almost finished ‘The Bones Of Odin’ by David Leadbeater on my Kindle. It was much better than seeing all the mayhem on TV.
We, in the coastal parts of the Netherlands, will see a southwesterly strong gale going over the country in the coming hours. Some gusts of wind will have hurricane force.
Next to that most trees still have their leaves, especially after all the nice balmy weather we had the last few weeks. They will be the first to suffer.
We have occasionally stormy weather, but winds like these are an exception to the rule. It’s best to stay indoors, and out-of-the-way of nearby trees or lose projectiles. So the summer chairs are stacked inside, small planters and other garden crap have a few days house arrest.
And I just noticed my battery of the insulin pump is empty and I forgot to get a few new ones. So early tomorrow I still have to go out to get hooked up again, I can do with a few hours without battery.
UPDATE: I found some batteries, so I don’t need to go out and get some.
