Hurricane Helene and Ireland/British Isles
« on: September 13, 2018, 02:05:42 pm »

So apparently last year was not an one off, Ireland is now a hurricane prone zone https://www.google.es/amp/s/www.dublinlive.ie/news/dublin-news/track-hurricane-helene-path-bring-15149235.amp

oh fug
how could this happen to us
was it because we deillegalized the gay

Also watch as UK based media edit the storm map to cover their audience's location

Spoiler (click to show/hide)
This storm appears to exclusively target areas with large populations of gingers

I'm not sure Scotland will even get any of this. Or if they do, it'll be indistinguishable from all the other rain and wind.

You missed the Scots, Cornish and Manx

At any rate you'd think the days of rain would fare fine until you see the cows stranded on their lonely hills, now turned to islands. Also the sky turns black and blue even though it's noon and Winter hasn't come yet

Even Poseidon seeks revenge for Brexit. Ireland is just collateral damage.

Oooh! A day off!  I'm down here in Devon, and it looks like we might get a taste of sweet, sweet hurricane.  I'll take anything over this endless bloody summer we've had this year.  IT'S SEPTEMBER! PISS OFF FLAMING SKY BASTARD!

I agree with Urist. Steampunk is like Darth Vader winning Holland's Next Top Model. It would be awesome but not something I'd like in this game.

Looks like it's going to dissapate and not be a post-tropical cyclone before it hits. Still going to throw whatever rain it has left at Ireland/UK.

Bah!

Though hurricanes in Ireland/UK seem fairly innocuous since we make our houses from stone instead of tinfoil/tissue paper or whatever materials you can find over the Atlantic.

How peculiar it is that we constructed our homes of solid materials without a single natural disaster to strike us, while the Americans, in their rush to colonise swiftly, built their homes out of tissue paper on hurricane/earthquake island.
