MisterMac has always fancied going on a storm-chasing trip (although I suspect he’s actually more of an armchair storm chasing enthusiast). I, on the other hand, have never fancied it and as the skies suddenly turned black at 3.00 this afternoon, I drove very quickly to try and get out of it, but not quickly enough. It was very weird, the temperature suddenly dropped, the heavens darkened and then the most torrential rain just hammered down, causing all sorts of mini-flooding problems on the road. The good news, though, was that the shoppers in a rush to get out of the rain just abandoned their shopping lists, so I am now building up quite a collection! One of today’s finds had ‘gruyere type cheese’ listed, which begs the question “Why not buy gruyere?”.
