Gosh how strange this year’s weather is turning out to be. No sooner had we had the hottest fortnight on record in July, we then went back to the wettest summer and the coldest August etc. Whilst we’re whinging about chilly nights, or hot humid ones, the poor folk in Houston are mopping up from the worst rainfalls ever recorded and Hurrican Harry has moved on elsewhere to be replaced out in the caribbean by Isla.
It is unbelievable – when I was growing up. one of these events in a child’s lifetime was rare and so unsual that it made the news for weeks and weeks. Keeping our own little powerhouse in tact and efficient is absolutely essential these days. Home solar and wind energy systems are really going to come into their own. Time to investigate this very seriously. We must do everything we can to mitigate our own losses for future crises!
