the end is nigh

October 16, 2017 5:21pm CST
The end is not nigh, but when greeted by an eerie light in the middle of the afternoon, one could be forgiven for thinking that North Korea and America had finally stepped into the fisticuffs boxing battleground in an effort to wow each other with their nuclear capabilities. We are experiencing the tail end of Ophelia. She is breezily reminding us of her presence. And I am so very tired.

I was concerned about my friends in Ireland and UK, I have read that Ophelia was pretty bad and left many without power. I hope it's over now. We have a weird hot October.

We just got the tail end here in the east of England. Orange skies, a bit of a breeze and a summer temperature.

@Poppylicious The temperature is very high here and it seems it's a consequence of Ophelia.

Yep, we were fortunate to have very little of Ophelia in the east. Not like 1987. Now that *was* a storm and a half!

I think I understand your tired feeling. Chasing after that kitten we've just got and made sure it did its dropping in the right corner took all of my energy. My back is screaming, 'let me rest! let me rest!', while the tune Hello by Lionel Richie kept coming to me, 'Hello, I've just got to let you know Cause I wonder where you are and I wonder what you do Are you somewhere feeling lonely? Or is someone loving you?'

Having a kitten is just like having a toddler, with the extra added bonus that they grow up a lot quicker!

Those lamp posts look like golf clubs. Perhaps Trump should challenge North Korea's kim jong un to a golf match at Mar-lago to settle their dispute?
