From 100 Word Challenge, this week’s words were ‘…the extreme weather meant…’
The following is a true story!
The extreme weather meant that there was chaos everywhere. Schools closed, public transport put on shortened runs, plans cancelled.
The most frustrating part was the run up to the weekend. Were we going away or weren’t we? Curries and cakes were made, bags packed, maps acquired and routes planned – a low one for the kids, a medium one for most of the adults and a serious one with lots of caches for the hardened walkers.
And then a call from the Youth Hostel. ‘The weather is closing in, we can’t get on or off site, and a tree has come down on the drive!’
