Cleveland vs Cyclone

The weather has again imposed itself on the day, as I experience the effect of the deep depression moving across the whole country. Some cans were just shaken from a shelf. The wind turbine has been dislodged in its fixing and will need attention if it survives the blow. The sea and wind has been unrelenting all day and it has been cold, dark and miserable here at Shivering Sands.

The steelwork in the fort carries the name of Dorman Long & Co of Middlesborough. In the contest between Cleveland and the cyclone there can be only one ultimate winner, but I hope the steel has a few rounds left in it yet.
