Good Luck Hawkeye!

Still no news from Hawkeye after the catostrophic hurricane, Ian made landfall earlier this week in Hawkeye's vicinity: Hawkeye, if you are able to read this, know you are in our thoughts and prayers not just from me but the readers of TBW too. Take care dear lady!

Ophelia became the 10th consecutive storm to grow into a hurricane in the Atlantic this season which has now tied the record last set in the late 1800's.
This season has recorded 6 major hurricanes including three which reached the highest category 5 strength along with 15 named storms
Ophelia is heading North East and is expected to hit the UK early next week after a weekend of summer temperatures.
It is the incredible strength of  three category 5 hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria which caused so much devastation which will be remembered this year, and with October a big month for Atlantic hurricanes there could be more to come
