As I write this, our country is being battered by storm Ciara. Many areas were left without power and water supplies, and we are receiving yellow and amber weather warnings. Parts of Yorkshire are submerged by floodwater and our thoughts go out to those whose houses and businesses are affected, in many cases not for the first time. Snow and ice have arrived in Northern England, Scotland and Devon, and coastal areas are experiencing tidal waves. Several people have lost their lives in these extreme weather conditions. Now we are bracing ourselves for more as storm Dennis is set to hit the UK at the weekend with more rain and strong gusts of wind. On top of this, many of us are still battling the colds, coughs and viruses that are doing the rounds, and we share our concern about the Corona virus with the rest of the world.
