Wet and Windy UK


rainJust like many others, I’m sure, I’ve been listening to the wind for several hours. Apparently Lee on the Solent has been experiencing 60 mph winds and that is only a couple of miles away. Sometimes it sounds like an express train passing through a station at speed. The 80 foot high Beech Tree at the front of the house is perhaps the most vocal although the wall of smaller trees to the back are competing well. It’s as well that it is dark outside as I would probably become rather anxious if I could actually see the trees moving in the wind.

The gutters are also making quite a bit of noise.Or, rather, the water spilling out of them is. Forming an impromptu waterfall and pool by the lounge window.

Well I’m heading to bed now. Keeping my fingers crossed that the dawn is going to reveal any damage.

Good Night and Good Luck to the rest of my fellow UK residents.

    • The worst time was late last night when it was dark. The only signs that we had a blow last night was that our Dragon Wind Chime was laying on the ground. No damage done. He’s flying again so all is good. How did you fare ?

      • Glad to hear you survived unscathed. Much the same here, I’m glad to report. I was expecting a lot worse in light of the row that was going on outside. The bins needed to be extricated from the buddleia and reoriented. But other than that, we were very lucky. I was pleasantly surprised.
