Around these parts it has been raining continuously and for the most part torrentially for about fourteen days, day and night, and there is no end in sight.
Except for one day. Saturday 23 February 2013. A beautiful bright sunny day and clear starry night.
So what happens?
The historic Uki pub burns down.
This is a tragedy on a scale that mere words are unable to convey. It requires a month of fasting, the rending of clothes and the synchronised communal gnashing of teeth.
I blame The Greens for all the bad weather. Why shouldn't I? They blame everyone else.
They are probably responsible for the fire as well. People drinking ice cold beer, listening to live music and having fun? Stop it. It offends Sharia and there has to be a carbon footprint in there somewhere.
