They billed Ciara as the ‘storm of the century’. Dude. I’m not even sure it was the storm of the last six months (we had some nasties in September).

We had high winds, sure. But — at least where we are — not far out of the ordinary, and not much rain. We didn’t even lose power.

The seas were high and I gather there was flooding in places that got more rain. Hence the picture. Not mine. Don’t know whose it is. It was the most stolen Tweet on Twitter yesterday.

Now, the Coronavirus? Doubled our cases overnight to eight, all due to one ‘super spreader’ who came from a conference in Singapore and infected a group of people in France, too. Brighton clinic on lockdown. Yes, that’s in our general area.

Wot fun!

For the moment the storm may cut the exposure since people will stay in doors and not wander about spreading their plagues.

Er.r.r. Is that a sea-serpent in the bottom left corner?

It’s Nessie Hark! So, technically a loch-serpent.

Adding to the “oh, crap” column, I read today that much of our medical protective gear (masks, gloves) come from — you guessed it, Communist China.

The real China problem won’t show up until you need a new toaster and can’t get one.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
