Freak storm in Millfield, Sunderland

Post by monty »

I was in Millfield, Sunderland yesterday when all of a sudden a freak storm crept up on me. The rain wasn't that heavy but the wind that came with it was incredible. I witnessed a few trees bend really badly all the dead leaves on them were blown off and the branches were blown backwards making them look like a blow wave hairstyle lol.

This lasted just a few minutes and then it was gone. I have never seen anything like this before and if you were in the house you probably would have missed it. Did anyone else notice this?

I can confirm what monty is saying is fact. It came and went after a few minutes. No warning before and when it went it went sudden. I wasn't in Millfield but close enough so whatever it was came my way too.


..... and Sunderland, the underdogs, are in the lead!

Maybe it was the ghost of Paolo Di Canio wanking back to his old office to gather his personal belongings :lol:
