The evenings are now drawing in, and it gets dark well before 9 pm. Only a few weeks away from the equinox, and all that. The hurricane season has come to live, and it takes me nearly half an hour to update the bulletins on my Tropical Cyclones blog. Hurricane Earl is bearing down on North Carolina and the US East Coast, while Typhoon Kompasu is making for Seoul.
Went for a walk around the town this afternoon, but ended up midge-fodder. Part of the Nicolson Institute has been knocked down, affording views in the area not seen since the 1930s. Got a few bits and pieces in the shops before escaping from the winged fiends.
