The day starts off dry but by mid-morning a powerful Atlantic front brings rain and grey skies. Angus thinks it's a bit like a February day on Tiree. ' The Font ' points out that it's more like an August day on Tiree.
As the rain falls Bob sits in the office with Angus. Sophie joins 'The Font' in a webinar with the Pasadena astrophysicists. The astrophysicists are younger than the astronomers and have more hair. They wear fleeces ( presumably because the air conditioning is ferocious ) and drink from huge Styrofoam cups. What they drink is a mystery. Today's lecturer signals the end of each topic with a staccato " You all cool with that ? ". Before anyone has a chance to respond he's off again. Angus is not cool with any of it. He can't help but notice that the entire class seems to be composed of Chinese teenagers. Sophie is completely engrossed by what she sees on the screen .
In the supermarket Gombo's and Physalis make an appearance. Why these exotic products are suddenly appearing in deepest France profonde is something of a retailing mystery. Dog and master buy a pint of milk.
Huge storms have been ravaging the coast. Thankfully everyone was saved but this video is terrifying : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQPGoubOsWk
