Stormy weather brings silver lining for MSPs

Debbie Thomson

It won’t have escaped anyone’s notice that the weather in recent months has been unpleasant to say the least.  Not only has much of the US and Canada welcomed in the new year with temperatures the coldest in almost 20 years, the UK is also said to have experienced its windiest December since 1969!

Though many may debate the link between recent bad weather and the issues surrounding climate change, one thing that IS clear from this disastrously miserable winter is that bad weather can hit at any time and the consequences can be catastrophic.

Stormy-WeatherWhat Happens When Disaster Strikes?

It has already been reported that 1,700 homes have been flooded as a result of storms in the UK and nearly 1,000 homes in Newfoundland, Canada have been left without electricity due to weather related power outages.

The number of businesses affected is unclear, but for many SMBs the possible effects of adverse weather just doesn’t bare thinking about, as an MSP however, perhaps there is a silver lining!
