Holiday? Pah!

imageWell, here we are.

We should be sitting in our little Cornish “cottage”. Instead, we’re in the kitchen at home, listening to the wind howl and staring out into the pitch black garden.

With the Met. Office seemingly predicting the end of the world and the weather forecasters working themselves into a frenzy over the impending “Great Storm of 2013”, we’ve decided to delay the start of our holiday, as we can’t get sand bags into the car and I threw away all our ancient tinned food recently – This weather may actually exceed our normal ability to get the wellies out and “carry on”.

Great shame, as it will mean cutting our stay short when we do get there, but that’s better than ending up with a tree on your head and no electricity. Or failing that, being stuck in a fifty mile traffic jam on Bodmin Moor (“Here be dragons” or the ghost of Joss Merlyn).

Time to open the wine, fire up the over expensive heating and cuddle the cats. Rain, rain go away….quickly.

  1. Cheers, I guess there’s nothing else to do but rest and hope you make it to the storm of 2013 good luck!

    • Hi. Thanks for stopping by. Yes, fortunately, the storm should be pushed out into the North Sea, by Tuesday. We’ll just need to keep an eye on the weather reports!
      Best wishes

  2. Likewise, DG … we’re on the edge of Bodmin Moor here and we have just taken what precautions we could to hunker down for the rest of the day.

    Hopefully your holiday won’t be too delayed.

    • Hi Angie. We decided to throw caution to the winds and drive down this afternoon. Roads clear (what a surprise!), so we had a good run. We’ve spent all our money on board games and Lego ready for tomorrow…now sitting in the little house staring out at vast quantities of rain. Just hope we’ve done the right thing…even our cats sense ‘something’s up’. We left them sleeping in the same room – very unusual.
      Best wishes and keep safe!
      DG
