Travellers heading for Britain have bee warned to beware of the weather as the nation battens down the hatches for the biggest storm in Twenty six years.
The storm formed in the gulf of Mexico and has been rapidly bearing down on Britain. Forecasters have warned its strength is approaching the infamous1987 'Great Storm, with winds up to 200km/h, which killed 18 people and destroyed Fifteen million trees in southern England ( An unconfirmed report that several hundred greenies suicided hasn't been traced as yet).
The storm has already been named the St Jude's Storm - named after the patron saint of lost causes believed to be a Victorian blogger from OZtrayer. whose feast day falls on this coming Monday.It is expected that the storm will stuff up the British having 'Yankee inspired Halloween celebrations'.
Halloween may be seen as a treat for children but those of us with a brain believe it is a trick by the CON fectionary industry to exploit fat children who normally do not walk and sit at computers most of their sedentary lives. On our front Door on the 31st expect to see a "Bugger off" sign.
As for the storm, the pommy Chief Forecaster at the Met office said the storm was likely to rapidly intensify just west of the U/K late on Sunday night before tracking across England and Wales on Monday in time for Halloween.
Who knows where inspiration comes from? Perhaps it arises from desperation.
Perhaps it comes from the flukes of the universe, the kindness of the muses.
Readers are cordially invited to comment on this post and where possible a reply to your comment will be in order. Particularly those pommy rello's from the old Dirt. Enjoy your storm. tell me all about it first hand.
Enjoy your Halloween, Vest,...... Back very soon.
