After a looong time with lots of gray skies and rain and especially wind, we have a lovely clear blue sky today. And yes, it does tend to get colder when the skies clear this time of year in the very Northern Hemisphere – but to me, it is immensely preferable to wet and bleh!
As to the wind, we’ve had two storms passing by within not much more than a week – with the new habit of naming these things, we had first Gorm then Helga paying a visit. Classified as class 3 and 1, respectively (not sure about the system – could be the Saffir-Simpson one), they were not truly havoc wreaking, even if Gorm did turn over trees and wreck scaffolding here and there. Seems that Denmark got off lighter this time around than the UK (where Helga as far as I understand was a lad named Desmond and caused floodings, power outages and what have you).
Happy to note that the winds seem to have died off before I once again take a seat in a pressurized metal tube and take off into the skies tomorrow morning. Austria and the UK on the – very short and compressed – programme this week, should any one want to know.
