Irma bring Big Ben traditions to mind

As I write this we are under a mandatory evacuation order thanks to Hurricane Irma, but it looks like she is veering westwards, so we watch, wait and pray. By the time this goes to print, old Irma will have passed, and we will all be dealing with the aftermath.
