Word of the Day

Procellous, meaning stormy, especially of the sea.

I have never, ever heard this word before in my life. I am fairly educated; I write for a living. I am very happy that I know it now.

It is especially appropriate today, as poor old Blighty is being battered and lashed and bashed by storms.

Wonderful photograph of the lighthouse at Newhaven, taken by Glyn Kirk for the AFP.
