You know – it was threatening HAVOC?
1. Well, it turns out we probably didn’t need to worry quite so much.
2. The truth is, we are British; as we all know, we keep a stiff upper lip in the face of adversity.
3. We see positives everywhere.
5. Yes. Times are tough.
6. And we don’t know why this is happening to us.
7. But in the face of extreme weather…
8. …in which an untold amount of damage has been caused…
9. …we remain vigilant.
10. When confronted by a hurricane, we merely push up our brollies, and press on.
11. No matter how many times this image appears in our Twitter timelines.

14. Bertha might knock us down.
15. But we just get right back up again.
