the weather

I watched 20 minutes of full on storm footage, with that litany of trees uprooted, cars afloat, jetties smashed like matchsticks, ferries retreating, power cuts, cranes snapping, train chaos, havoc wreaked.

The back fence with a bad lean didn't seem so bad. It's just done its back.

We all coolly put on our coats and went up the road for pasta in february

Comments: topical

this extreme weather is a manifestation of global warming, probably linked to the recent collapse of the antarctic ice cap.
It is only going to get worse.

I've never heard of a "litany" of trees uprooted, etc.

Although I might have missed the odd one while the power was out.

Are you smashing my literary style like match-sticks?
Hmm - perhaps that should read "I listened."

"A repetitive or incantatory recital"

- and another reason - there was a rhyme to it.

I had to prune the sentence of its offensive "of of",
so I added a "with" when I was there, defensively.
