Spare a thought...

By Chinga
Spare a thought... I couldn't upload a Silly image as Hurricane Leslie churned across the Atlantic Ocean last night heading toward's Portugal and Spain after lots of destruction in Madeira... with forecasters saying the storm brings heavy rain, high winds and dangerous surf to parts of the Iberian Peninsula. Forecasters said sections of Portugal are experiencing hurricane-force winds, while parts of western Spain are expected to be hit with huge storm-force winds. The Category 1 storm was 315 kilometers (195 miles) southwest of Lisbon, the Portuguese capital, Leslie's maximum sustained winds were 75 mph (120 kph) and those winds extend outward for 95 kilometers (60 miles). Over a hundred trees have been uprooted, property damaged and at present half of the Country is in the darkness... Very sad...
Thank you to Ryan (Irishsmile), Jeff (Kojack), David (HobbitDave), Ken (Rambler) and Graham (Ericsamson) for awarding the shadow images. Isabel

Sorry for all these bad results of the strong winds, it's a few days only that we felt it in Greece, I can understand...

Sad to hear. So many destructive Storms are active across the World at present. Parts of Queensland had huge storms and hail as big as golf balls. Perth had a terrible thunderstorm last night with winds over 80kms in places. Western Australia also had a small earthquake last week.

A fine set, Isabel. The storms are terrible and something that's difficult to prepare for really.

Very clever impressions of stormy weather. I do agree, we sympathise with those who suffer from such natural disasters. My daughter and husband are transatlantic sailors, at present, hopefully safe on the Canadian coast at present. Derek
Great set using artistic flair. My thoughts are with you and to all those people who are suffering at the hands of mother nature. She can be so beautiful but also very destructive.

Terrible news about the weather conditions, we don't know how lucky we are here - it was quite wet yesterday and blustery too, but nothing like the reports we hear 😟 A fine set of reflective images, Isabel 👍🙂

At long last Storm Callum seems to have left Cornwall, with trees down and havoc on the roads and we are still cut off by rail!

The lead for me Isabel , I Just came across this image of yours a few days after the fact. Very alarming to hear about the Iberian hurricane , Glad to hear you and your family there came out alright . People get killed from falling trees and flying laughing matter .
Cheers Walt
