1. Aunque se nos avisó que iba a haber vientos huracanados, no sabíamos que iba a arrancar los árboles del húmedo suelo. También nos dijeron que no anduviéramos en bici y que nos quedáramos en casa 2. Gracias a Dios que pude llegar porque me tuve que agarrar a un semáforo para que no me metiera en la carretera y a otros se los llevaba, o los llevaba para atrás, y había pilas de contenedores. iQué lío! 3. El pasado miércoles fue el más caluroso que ha habido en este país. Claro la gente no tenía aire acondicionado y tuvimos que prepararnos a sudar. Si por lo menos tuvieran ventiladores. Although we were warned there were going to be hurricane-force winds, We didn ´t know it was going to rip trees out of the wet soil We were also told not to cycle and to stay indoors 2. Thank God that I could get there as I had to grab hold a traffic light so as not to be blown into the road Some others were blown over or backwards and there were piles of rubbish bins. What a mess! Last Wednesday was the hottest day ever in this country Yet people didn ´t have air conditioning and we had to get ready for sweating If only they had fans

4. Me despertó mi hija gritando. Hacía casi 50 años que no nevaba. Decidimos no enviarlos al cole e hicimos un muñeco de nieve. La gente estaba alucinada como en trance como si estuvieran haciendo una peli de alto presupuesto. Fue un caos para la gente que iba a trabajar. I got woken up by my daughter screaming. I hasn´t snowed here for nearly 50 years. We decided not to sent the kids to school and we made a snowman People were amazed as if in a trance, as if a high-budget film were being made It was chaos, though, for those people whowere going to work.
