Friday 9 December 2011
Today's cartoon is advent/Christmas themed only in the sense that every December Scotland has a major weather crisis (last years leading to the cartoon about Santa being stranded on the M8).
The Friedhelm storm to give it it's proper title did cause major chaos with the police advising no-one to travel for much of the day. When I drove home from work at my usual time it was still blustery but with the roads nearly empty I got home in no time at all.
I'm not disputing the severity and potential for damage of the wind but the news/media coverage of this storm probably caused more worry than the 'hurricane' itself with those at home constantly phoning up those who hadn't been let away to tell them about some other piece of advice or crazy picture that had just appeared.
Still my today there was Youtube videos, I survived the hurricane T-shirts and who knows what other banter going on so now I know no-one was seriously injured here's my 2p. Back to Christmas spirit tomorrow.
