With the crimson-coloured sky I was put in mind of the saying 'red sky at night, shepherd's delight/Red sky in the morning, shepherd's warning.' I just hope the forecast for storms and sea-surges doesn't mean a lot of damage and chaos. If so, the well-known saying will be completely correct and not just another so-called old-wives tale. And could someone tell me who this 'old wives' were and why they kept coming up with their sayings, correct or otherwise?
Watching the BBC lunchtime news it looks as if the storm has hit already. When the Environment Agency is involved and places are being evacuated, things must be getting really bad. They are saying it could be one of the worst storms for 60 years.
