stormy weather

had my lunchbreak walk in the windforce 12 out there.
this wind sweeps us, people, of our feet. people walking with a forward slant, literally holding on to their hats - what a nice oldfashioned gesture. wonder if there exists a museum for forgotten body language? police line, do not cross: streets closed off, tiles being blown of the roofs. lots of sirens going on, but they nearly drown in the noise of the storm that's on top of everything. it's eerie.
& you know, as long as i don't fall down and break my leg or get hit by a flying tile, i love this weather. Clouds racing through the clear blue sky. a sense of nature's powers, humbling us city folk.
