Blow The Wind Southerly

October, time for a bit of wind and fresh air. Perhaps we may get more than we really want. The diagram above comes from today’s (Saturday) US Geological Service web site and shows the estimated track of Hurricane Otto that has not long formed in the Atlantic.

The USGS is always careful in its estimates, as we know the media and public can be very impatient of variations and do not accept uncertainty as a necessary condition of being.

So whether this one becomes weaker, or stronger, or disperses, or shifts direction we will have to see during the course of the week. I shall be watching.

What would be interesting is that if it does come into the English Channel as the same time as seasonal high tides with perhaps a strong northerly on the fringe then it could be very exciting. At 150 feet above sea level I am alright.

It could be fun though to see people rowing in Parliament Square.

All together now:

Jolly boating weather,
And a hay harvest breeze,
Blade on the feather,
Shade off the trees,
Swing swing together,
With your bodies between your knees,
Swing swing together,
With your bodies between your knees.
