December 5th 1972

“It rained agane today and vere was Force Ten Wind (Cor!)”

On the recognised Beaufort Scale a “force ten wind” is noted thus:- “Trees are broken off or uprooted, saplings become bent and/or deformed, poorly attached asphalt shingles and shingles in poor condition peel off roofs.

It’s considered a strong “gale”, but just two steps away from a hurricane.

In other words, BLOODY windy!

The 50-year-old me would excrete a brick. The 14-year-old me appeared to respond with no more than a verbal shrug?!
