Storms? What storms?

We've had strong winds and rain and the news is full of floods and power cuts, yet no one's mentioned climate change. Saw a link to a BBC news report on Twitter, where some woman was complaining to the Prime Minister that "not enough has been done...". Doubt it's occurred to her that it'll be a losing battle to stop the flooding, long-term, if nothing is done about global warming. How much energy is she using, without consideration?

Anyhow, this was the view from my window this afternoon, just before a sheet of stratocumulus hid the blue sky. Deceptively calm and peaceful. It won't last.

PS: Forgot my camera the other day. Being driven through the next village, soon after a hail shower, saw storm clouds in the south, with torrential sheets of rain. To the west, clear blue sky. It all changes so quickly.

Stormy day rainbow

Today's news is all about the high winds, tidal surge and coastal flooding. Soon after I took this, it got darker, blew harder, and started to rain.

Pink evening

A brief flash of pastel colour at the end of a grey day, reflected from the sunset. This was the view from my window.
