We had been warned about it for quite a couple days. We knew weren’t going to receive a full lashing from Bertha – in fact, she was an ex-Hurricane – but that made it all the better because we get the excitement of extreme weather – without the real hard nosed consequences.
And so, when she arrived in the afternoon of 10th August – she came with a drum roll of thunder and an almighty clatter of rain against our windows. It wasn’t so much that she was a spectacular sight or did lots of damage – more, she reminded us that our drains don’t work; our roads flood easily and roofs leak. Thanks Bertha – now, can we get back to enjoying summer again?
