EXCEPTING the country’s wind farmers, for whom the past week presented significant commercial gains, the blustery conditions of recent days have resulted in little but an inconvenience to daily proceedings.

There were moments when even the adage of ‘pigs might fly’, came very close to becoming a reality.

How indeed one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
