We Have Been Warned . . .

Judith Ralston

The weather forecasters have warned us and warned us and warned us about Storm Babet -and it certainly looks as though parts of the east coast of Scotland are going to get a good wetting.

And yet – and yet – so many times we have had these warnings, psyched ourselves up, and then had a bit of a blow, a few drops of rain and its all over. Then, a week or two later, we say, “Coo, that winds getting up !”, and then the rain starts and we can barely see out of the windows on one side of the house, and a small river runs down our wee road. No mention of any such thing on the forecasts. It blows away in time and we sort ourselves out, pick up the things that have got blown about, and carry on as normal.
