But now, Britain is facing another disaster, great blizzards and super cold winter.
Forecasters warn temperatures are about to plunge to the lowest in 100 years, with snow storms or blizzards and ice expected to cause travel chaos and deadly road conditions when temperatures in some areas could fall to minus 6°c and as low as minus 20°c (4°f) through December and January due to clear sky and strong northerly winds.
Tonight’s cold snap is expected to last until the end of the week and temperatures could fall to as low as minus 3°c (27°f) in some places, with snow already falling in the Pennines.
In Saltburn, North Yorkshire, northerly winds have become so strong that they are pushing water back up a cliff.
Mirror News reported that Weather Channel meteorologist Leon Brown said bitter northerly winds would move south today leading to a widespread frost across much of the country.
He said that, “The east will be seeing some of the lowest temperatures of minus 4°c to minus 6°c. During Friday, showers over the north will move south across Scotland with sleet and snow. These showers will continue south on Friday evening giving a covering of snow to the Pennines and possibly the north Midlands and even East Anglia. It will be very icy by Saturday morning.”
MailOnline reported that the cold, drier spell that starts tonight could be only a brief respite from the rain and more heavy showers are expected to return early next week, causing more misery to those trying to combat flood damage.
Visla was proud of her new friend. She thanked the cat for helping her. Ahmad came out to check what had happened. He saw Visla’s new friend chasing the mean black cat away. Ahmad took out some milk for Visla and its new friend and played with them.
A few weeks later, Karim went out station to Kedah. Karim took Ahmad along with him. Karim’s eldest daughter, Aiman was on holidays, so she was assigned to take care of the cats. Aiman loved the cats too but Visla missed Ahmad. Visla was very lonely and felt all alone without its friend, Ahmad.
On the day Ahmad came home, Visla was not around the house. Everybody searched for Visla but could not find it. Ahmad searched around the neighbourhood and at last he saw Visla sitting on the roof of his house. He asked his father for a ladder but the ladder was not high enough to reach the roof. Ahmad called Visla down, holding a cup of milk, but Visla was too frightened to come down.
Then it started to rain, and Ahmad was really worried about Visla. He tried to think of the best way to help Visla to come down from the roof. Ahmad knew that Visla loved its kittens very much, so he took one of the kittens from their box and held it up toward the roof so that Visla could see the kitten and hear its meow. The kitten meowed but Visla did not even move from where it sat.
Ahmad took the kitten back to its box. All of the kittens were meowing calling for their mother. “They must be very hungry,” thought Ahmad. Ahmad was about to go to the fridge to get some milk for the kittens when he heard a sweet meow from behind him. It was Visla! Brushing her head at the door, Visla meowed at Ahmad happily. Visla then jumped into its box and licked its kittens. Ahmad was happy to see Visla again, and so did the kittens. And Visla was very happy to see Ahmad too.
