The Morning After…

The storm seemed to have departed from London.
Still breezy but not anything as ferocious as this morning’s. I had a few errands to run in Central London this lunchtime and snapped this picture in the middle of Oxford Circus…

There was a really fearsome noise followed by several car-alarms going off early this morning.
And this was the scene of the damage right by our apartment block…

I am sure the owner of the dented cars must be very annoyed but it was extremely lucky that nobody was around. Otherwise, someone could have been seriously maimed or even been killed.
Respect the power of nature. Never underestimate its potential…

St.Jude’s Fury

I was lying awake in my bed early this morning, listening to the  commotions outside.
St.Jude the Storm was creaming London. It was beating up trees, kicking around traffic cones, wiping bits & pieces off from roof gardens, starting up car alarms…etc. In short, I was having a huge tantrum. And I was holding my breath, feeling the awesome power of the storm…

Mr.B was very unsettled by the noise too.
His super-sensitive ears pricked up and he was fearing for an imminent danger. Don’t worry, we are safe in here.
But I will hold the lead extra firmly when I walk you this morning. So you won’t be swept away by the gust…
