Carried away

Mary Poppins-esque

When was the last time you got carried away?

Hi Laurie

I can just see the measuring tape – “Practically perfect in every way!” 😉

The last time I got carried away was just over a year ago when walking the dogs late one night in a strong southerly gale, and I got literally blown off the car park at the lookout by a strong gust of wind that I estimate was over 90 knots (the wind was blowing at a steady 70 knots, with occasional gusts). I was leaning into the wind, and even leaning at about 45 degree angle, could not maintain sufficient traction with my feet and was quite literally blown backwards and over the edge of the hill (where I got out of the main force of the wind and stopped moving).

It was quite an “interesting” experience.
