The weather in Asi seems to be
behaving itself recently so I thought I’d let you know about some of the
extreme weather which as been experienced in parts of the world this week:
In Athens on Monday torrential rain caused
extensive flooding. Up to 60mm of rain fell in just a few hours – to put this
into perspective the monthly
average for Athens
is 50mm! Authorities were forced to close major roads and the central subway
Tornadoes developed across Louisiana and northern Florida ahead of a winter storm on Tuesday
which brought extreme conditions that caused chaos on roads and at airports.
12-22 inches of snow fell and visibility dropped to 50 feet at times. In Armadillo
snow drifts reached 7 feet and a state of emergency was declared.
Record breaking snow fall was
recorded in Northern Japan on Friday. The
snow blanket south of Aomori
was more than 16 feet thick!
Aren’t you glad you’re on Ascension?
No more complaints about the occasional showers please! ☺
