Crazy weather on both sides of the Atlantic this weekend. My son was working out if his Mum would allow him to use a tray to go sledging on and my parents were describing the South Downs as the Alps yesterday. Then on the east coast of America, in one day over two foot of snow fell in some of the worst precipitation
seen since records began although I always find it astonishing that every NFL game was played yesterday whereas the football schedule continues to get descimated
Here in Bermuda on Saturday we had our own little weather story when a tornado burst through Hamilton around 3.40pm. I was out in the car at that point and I would never have thought that driving at 10mph could be so treacherous. The tornado touched down in Reid Street and part of the solid limestone roof of the Magistrates Court was blown off and landed in the road, fortunately on a busy shopping day no one was injured. Meanwhile as I drove down Front Street mopeds were toppling like dominoes and large branches were slapping into the car.
The photograph is one I took yesterday of workers fixing the Court roof.
