One of the signs of getting old is that the weather forecast becomes one of your favourite programmes. In recent years, they have been getting very accurate.
But they have excelled themselves now. Yesterday evening, they forecast very strong winds today. And they were right. Very bad wind. Strong enough to cause damage.
But how do they do it? How on earth could they have know that later in the evening I was going to have four cans of Guinness and a prawn vindaloo curry?
