storm warning

There is an weather warning for today as a violent storm is on its way. Right now we have a 7 on the Beaufort scale, but it’s predicted to go up to 11 with a break in the weather in tow. It’s about 1:30 pm and I’ll leave for university now, hopefully I will be able to return tonight – a month ago we had the first real storm of the year and it shut down close to all public transportation!

That’s the downside of living in the north. Let’s hope the dikes will withstand the predicted storm tide. Some decades ago a similar stormy situation caused a lot of nasty results in this city. Glad I’m living in a slightly elevated neighbourhood!

Take care,

Starfish
