Autumn Leaf Sky

Bronze, pink and green Autumn coloured leaves make a vibrant foreground to a baby blue cloudy sky.

It’s 30 years ago tonight that the UK experienced ‘The Big Storm of 1987’ made famous – or rather infamous- by the terrible damage that was done, and also by that memorable weather forecast by Michael Fish who had been asked by a viewer whether a hurricane was on the way – to which he replied “no” and not to worry about it. I still remember it – lying awake that night with two small children in the house wondering if the windows were going to cave in.

The interesting thing about this is that another storm is on its way here tonight and through tomorrow – the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia. A strange coincidence.
