The ninth severe storm of the season barrelled into the cliffs of Cornwall yesterday. It was the most savage so far in what has been a very stormy winter. Our winters are becoming noticeably more stormy, no doubt a consequence of climate change, but also hoping that the relentless stormy weather this year is also partly attributable to the current El Niño. There have been precious few days this winter with sunshine and light winds. Two in fact that I can recall… Anyway, not writing to complain, yesterday quite the opposite – from a purely selfish point of view (I wasn’t flooded and my house still has a roof so far as I can tell..) 90mph winds and 40ft swells were spectacular… so rather than ramble on.. a few pictures follow ….
