Fun in the sun wind

A dodgy photo of a fallen tree in Cardiff Eight people dead, thousands of trees struck down. It’s been a crazy day. Apparently part of Warwick Uni’s campus has been closed as debris was being blown off the roof of the library.

I’ve spent the day trying to get video of said destruction in Cardiff (see right – not taken by me, I should add) and if there’s two things I’ve learned today, it’s:

  1. Trying to shoot in 50mph+ winds is fun
  2. Trying to show 50mph+ winds on film is a nightmare

Even blowing trees look tame on tape. I nearly fell over several times down in Atlantic Wharf, but the only way to show the strength of these winds would have been to hang me from a lamp-post. And you can imagine how bad that would have looked…

    The old Westwood Library once again evades closure, rats, have to go to work tomorrow after all. Hopefully the PGCE students will decide not to come in and I will have somewhere to park! Not likely though.
