Hurricanes in the North Sea

AOG, Madrid

Storms and hurricanes swept down from the Atlantic yesterday upon northern Europe. Many deaths. Damage, felled trees, cranes destroying nearby buildings. And cancelled flights.

I am flying out to London tonight. Will I get there? Will my flight be cancelled. Writing from Madrid, where the sun is shining (eventhough it is cold as heck!) I wonder.

I also wonder about Global Warming and the end of the planet. Last weekend for the first time, my partner and I discussed buying a property by the sea. We joked about how the seas will rise, the present coastline dissappear, and how Sant Pere de Ribes might be the new Sitges. And Seville the new Cadiz. Ha ha, he he. But who is to know for sure?
