Got the news yesterday that my sister's gdn fences were all blown down. Musta been a fair bit of structural damage in some parts of the country. She lives in the NE (Lincolnshire), & now considering replacing it with a wall. I wonder if the US/Mexican border reaches that far?
Hopefully we''ve escaped lightly in the SE, but there's no knowing what we'll find when we get back.
The 10th Commandment was it? Thou shalt not be envious of smug wazzocks like Loquat.
There have been a few deaths here & there - weather-related RTA's, falling trees, etc. - so not entirely a trivial matter. One guy in his 60's, who therefore should have known much better, died after falling thru ice on a boat lake in Danson Park, not 3 miles from where we live. We used to go there quite often when our kids were growing up.
Seems advancing years don't always equate with more wisdom or common sense. As someone famously once said, the trouble with common sense is that it's not very common.
How very true.
Not denying there is some element of truth in all the barbs about how we 'cope' with a light dusting of snow. I can take a ribbing just as well as the next guy, but in this instance at least, it doesn't accurately portray the whole story.
No doubt there was plenty of fun & frolics to be had, but there were also a few personal tragedies thrown into the mix. Guess that pretty much reflects the general complexities of life.
