Lightning Frightening, When The Wind Blows...
Well, if there's one thing the year of little Alex's birth will be remembered for here in Blighty, it's that predictably British topic of conversation, the weather. Britain is currently in the grip of terrifying storms and paralysing floods, with over 3,000 homes already under water and the promise of far worse to come this weekend. The Environment Agency today announced that the torrent of water witnessed so far is on the same scale as the 'Great Floods' of 1947.
Hmmm...does that mean there was another baby's birth heralded by floods that year? Spooky...is somebody trying to tell us something? Whatever, it gives a whole new meaning to the phrase 'my waters have broken'!
