A Bad Case of Wind
Thanet has escaped relatively lightly today, given the force of the wind on the south coast. That said, with our beaches closed and reportedly yet another sewage leak after yesterday's heavy rain, perhaps and in an ironic sense, it's not such a bad thing that the gale is keeping tourists away from our lovely but embattled beaches. but that's no consolation to the businesses suffering along our coastline as a consequence.
As you can see from the photo of a 'passing pooch', I've been out for a stroll with my camera but really couldn't catch anything that might dramatically sum-up the gale. Let's all hope that the bad weather will expend itself before the Olympic torch relay arrives in Thanet on July 19th and Tracey Emin get's her tracksuit on to join all our local runners in procession towards Canterbury and Medway where it looks as if I may be flying a form of air support to welcome it.
