Yesterday was a very wet day. Storm Ali and Storm Bronagh sweeping in off the Atlantic.
First was Ali, on Wednesday; second Bronagh last night overnight (and indeed now whilst I type this). Both storms bringing with them wind and rain.
Yesterday however, the calm between the storms was nothing like. A band of rain pulled between the two of them sat across the country for most of the afternoon and evening and caused localised flooding and high rivers around Sheffield.
My usual 40 minute commute home from the site I was on took almost an hour and a quarter due to closed roads, queues, and some major floods.
Today should be a finer day, although there’s a loop out in the Atlantic which could twist up into another storm for Sunday to Monday.
Hannah is supposed to be going camping this weekend too. We’re not sure if that’s still happening.
SimCity has all but died as a franchise. The latter ones haven’t really caught the spirit of the early games; however, Cities Skylines is a beast of a game adding so much to the original ideas of SimCity and making for a very wholesome game.
It’s pretty much how Planet Coaster killed the Rollercoaster Tycoon franchise really. The original was the best, but the later games lost their way – especially the horrible Android abominations.
It’s quite a few years since I’ve had dental work of any kind done after being screwed by two dentists who were then struck off; it tends to make one a little jittery.
Anyhow, after my teeth started hurting a few weeks ago I decided I really had to get something done as a matter of urgency so I registered with a dentist and I now have a list of work that needs doing.
Next time I’m in, in a couple of weeks time, I’ll be having my front teeth fixed, but for now I’ve had the nerve removed from the back tooth and it’s now filled to a decent level and ready to be prepared for crowning.
