The Tower And A Tornado

One Friday,  December 11, at my home in the UK, I was conferring with my cards for comments or advice about my husband’s imminent trip to Boston, I drew The Tower card.

The Tower card signifies upheavals, crises….the house of cards collapses. It can also refer to the weather. The Gilded Tarot‘s Tower is shown below, image reproduced by kind permission of Ciro Marchetti.


‘You’ll need to pack your raincoat,’ I said to Il Matrimonio. ‘There’s going to be rain. In fact, I think there’s going to be a storm.’

‘There is not,’ he said. ‘You mad cow. The weather forecast for Boston next week says 70 odd degrees.’

‘Be a stubborn old thickhead then, ‘ I said. (The oracle is unperturbed by rudeness, and can dish it with the best) ‘Because I think it will rain, and it’s a long way to travel without even a raincoat, in September. That’s just common sense, but if you want to behave like a delta brain, on your own head be it, you’ve been warned, the Tower’s saying ‘storm.’

Storm indeed. It came next morning just before 8. First there was thunder and a downpour. Then we only had a TORNADO. It followed the thunder, screaming down our road like a banshee. I’ve never heard anything like it….a great scream of sound, and down went a neighbours wall, and wheeee! crash! went sundry dustbins and garden furniture, and somewhere a poor cat yowled in terror, and I hope it isn’t under Mr Fagge‘s wall.

A tiny tornado, being British. It affected no more than half a dozen roads. Extravagance is so vulgar. And I do not want to encounter one bigger than tiny. This link offers footage of some British tornadoes being tamely moderate:- http://www.uk-severe-weather.co.uk/

The spouse loved Boston and it was great weather.

Except that was, for his one free day, when he went out on a whale watching trip,  and saw a Japanese man being very sick on deck, and later a fin and something black just beneath the surface which only one other person spotted. It rained pretty much all day, and he was so glad he had decided to pack his raincoat after all. Until next time:)
