Here are some tips on how to deal with the last of the UK’s megastorm


1) Dress appropriately

Shield yourself against the rains. This might be impossible against these gales, but wellies and a raincoat will protect you from getting wet (or at least try to)

 

2) Arrange alternative accommodation

If you’re house has been damaged by Thor’s wrath, then it might be a good time to bribe your mate to let you stay over. Washing a few dishes is a small price to pay for a sturdy roof over your head.

For some of us going to lectures or placements is imperative. So if you don’t have wellies or want to avoid being showered by muddy water by the rush hour traffic, use a taxi or bus. Plus, Cardiff taxi drivers love to chat, so that’s rainy day entertainment sorted!

 

4) Live the good ol’ life

Some parts are experiencing technical difficulties. So if you don’t have Internet (Oh! The horror!), whip out the card deck! Play some Snap or Poker (you might as well try to make some money in this God awful weather…)
