Simple Pleasures

I was sat seated on the omnibus this morning, on the way to work. There were two wee mini-humans on as well (kids). They made me think about living and growing up. 247 more words

The Storm is a work of journalism & science reporting by Defoe. It has been called the first substantial work of modern journalism, the first detailed account of a hurricane in Britain. It relates the events of a week-long storm that hit London starting on 24 November & reaching its height on the night of 26/27 November 1703. Known as the Great Storm of 1703, & described by Defoe as "The Greatest, the Longest in Duration, the widest in Extent, of all the Tempests & Storms that History gives any Account of since the Beginning of Time."

Defoe described the storm as “the tempest that destroyed woods and forests all over England”

“Most People expected the Fall of their Houses,” wrote Defoe. Even so, they judged it safer to stay put than to seek new shelter: “Whatever the Danger was within doors, ’twas worse without; the Bricks, Tiles, and Stones, from the Tops of the Houses, flew with such force, and so thick in the Streets, that no one thought fit to venture out, tho’ their Houses were near demolish’d within.” Some of the first-hand accounts include that of Elizabeth Luck from Tunbridge Wells, who reported hundreds of trees fell down, a church lost its steeple, and two horses perished beneath a smashed stable. 104 more words
