Its as stormy as I've seen it here today. The Channel is foaming, the tide is staying in, the rain is almost horizontal at times. The sea road must be well flooded by now. I did try to go to the Hall this morning - got all kitted up - but was almost swept off my feet by the wind as I tried to struggle to my car.
So I gave up and retreated inside. Its not possible to go door to door in this anyway.
I must struggle out to the meeting tonight though - and the second Circuit Overseer talk.
Spoke to Col this morning on Skype - and we have emailed. The small island which sits almost on the equator, is in its full blazing sunshine once again, so maybe their monsoon has arrived here. I set my as yet unpublished Dive thriller on the island.
If I were younger and my back wasn't hurting - and I was sure i could stay on my feet - I would have gone down to the beach and watched the waves close up for a while.
