It’s been really windy in Bath today, and Watkins hasn’t even been to visit. My short walk to work was most treacherous. I daren’t take an umbrella for fear of being propelled into the skies by gale force winds. During my trek to the office, I wished I had phoned in sick and avoided the hazardous conditions.

Me on the way to work

On hindsight it appears I was wise to go to work. When I arrived back at Newbridge Hill (where I live), I was greeted to a scene of mass destruction. The neighbouring B&B had lost its sign – it was completely snapped off in the wind. Apparently the residents are away on holiday, so God knows where the sign had gone – half way to Bristol probably.

The greatest destruction however, was discovered at my flat. Half the chimney had fallen down in the storm, crashing right by the front door. Had someone been standing there, or leaving the flat, they would have surely been killed. As I blog, half the chimney is currently hanging from the roof of the house – it could fall down at any time. Tomorrow morning, on the way to work, I will have to run from my house to the street to avoid “death by chimney”.

The whole incident was a tad scary and makes you think how storm related deaths (like these tragedies) occur.

If anybody wants to make a donation to my landlord (for a new chimney) or the B&B (for a new sign) please fill in your credit/debit card details on the DEC website. Forget the tsunami, that took place years ago, Bath is the place in crisis in 2007.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
