Writers on the Storm

After the Storm by Gary Smith

Well, here in the UK we're buckling down for the worst predicted storm in five years. Apparently it's on its way, and we're right in its path here at the top of the River Severn. Strong winds and heavy rain, which is always fun in Gloucester, where some genius twist of urban planning placed our main electricity station right in the middle of a floodplain. Back in 2007 we also lost our water supply, and Tewkesbury became an island.

Michael Fish has been roped into telling everyone it might not be too bad, which probably means it's a hurricane.

I shall put the kettle on.

Nothing a nice cup of tea can't fix.

I was up 'til three in the morning reading a book, which I'll tell you about in a moment.
