The hero of the hour has not been, as you might expect, a fireman or helicopter pilot winching holiday-makers off roofs. No, it’s a man who saved two dogs (we love dogs in Britain): one, by holding it above the water for two-and-a-half hours; the other, by putting it in a fridge, which I would not have thought a fantastic idea, but which appeared to save it from a fate worse than flu.
Well done, that man! Well done, Cornwall! I hear it got a little windy over on the Atlantic side of the States, but you know, we have it pretty damn tough as well.
