Remains of the (American) Day!


Hurricane BerthaToday the UK has been hit by the remains of Hurricane Bertha. An American friend e-mailed a photo taken in Portland US yesterday which showed a multi-forked lightening strike near a well-known local monument. We battened down the hatches in preparation for some American left-overs…

The remains of Hurricane Bertha
Have been around today
Rain and hail with lightening
Strong winds have made trees sway!
But this time lacked Michael Fish
(On Utube you can play)
In Ninety-Seven he forecasted:
“No hurricane on its way!”
