So after a weekend of Storm Brian it seems apt that today’s prompt is weather. We’ve been in Brighton this weekend where the weather was quite spectacular, the waves were so high and fierce, fantastic to watch from a distance. Earlier this week when it was Storm Ophelia, it was the sea and sky which were mesmerising, the colour, clouds, waves etc..
Before I lived at the seaside, I didn’t pay much attention to the weather simply to check for the basics, sunshine or rain. However at the seaside the weather has more of an effect, particularly with the tides and we get some spectacular weather, good and bad, at times. Our town has been flooded in recent years and damage has been done by storms. Even today, I saw lots of sand bags by the doors of those businesses on the seafront. I am more aware of my environment too, I am convinced that the sea and sky are a different shade everyday and I would be careful of some activities in extreme weather.
I agree with the adage that there is no such thing as bad weather just wrong clothes. I am an outdoor person and cannot stay inside all day, unless I’m really poorly. My preference is the sunshine but I can happily run or walk on a crisp, cold day and enjoy warming up after.
