637. Climate change

© Bruce Goodman 9 July 2015


The thirty-first of January was a wild, tempestuous day. Well, so wrote Agnes Grey. Actually, it wasn’t Agnes Grey at all; it was Anne Brontë in her novel Agnes Grey.

The thirty-first of January was a wild, tempestuous day. Yeah, right. I suppose next they’ll be saying it was a dark and stormy night.

It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents — except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets. Well, so said Paul Clifford. Actually, it wasn’t Paul Clifford at all; it was Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, aka The Lord Lytton, in his novel Paul Clifford.

Anne Brontë and Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton’s treatment of the weather is utterly irresponsible. I wouldn’t be surprised if those two were the ones responsible for all this bad bloody weather we’ve been having.

    They should both certainly be blamed for something. Bad weather will do nicely. And climate change has been going on for some time. They may actually have started it. This should be investigated, scientifically, of course.

            Ok – I THINK there should now be a “Follow” button at the bottom of the right hand column on each page. If this doesn’t work for non-WordPress people then I’m not sure what to do!

    Jackie’s cousin, Adrian Barlow, is on blogspot. He sends me a link via e-mail and that gets me to it. I can’t however, comment etc., without a blogspot account.

    What else could you write about if you lived in Heathcliffe land?
