Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
33 years ago today we moved from Loughton in Essex to Cornwall (best thing we ever did). Our move was blighted by two days of terrible weather caused by the leftovers of Hurricane Charley, which had formed near Florida the week before. The Cornish removal company, two men and the strongest woman I've ever seen in my life, loaded all our belongings, most of which was going into store, into the van in a blinding rainstorm (thankfully all was well when we finally retrieved our furniture four months later), then camped on the floor of our empty living room overnight, which we hadn't expected. I had to buy them all fish and chips. Charley wreaked havoc in Ireland that week via huge amounts of rainfall.
