Sounds a bit like a joke, but last week London was hit by a tornado. A mini-tornado. But nevertheless a tornado. A few houses were badly damaged, several families needed to be re-housed. I didn't know until yesterday that I only live about a mile from the place where that is but can confirm that the sky went from blue to black within a few minutes (while i was brushing my teeth and shaving), then we had hale and thunder and lightning and all that sort of stuff and then, while I was having a bowl of cereal the sun broke through again and it was over. Well, climate change.
