Re: Stormy 2017

Never clicked the link but as for storms, this could go on and on couldn't it? only now we have the technology to see them more often because they have always been around. And why are we reporting storms? @Mav cooked up a storm in the kitchen yesterday but I don't see that being reported anywhere #getitright

Re: Stormy 2017

I have to say I think some of these storms are getting overblown. Yes I did say that.

Here we had all the warnings of high winds yesterday but the real storm was confined to the Wales area.

I have a simple way of judging wind strength.

Very windy - my front room door starts opening by itself.

Very very windy - my living room door joins in.

None of that happened yesterday so for me I would say it was just a bit blowy.

So here it was a case of storm, what storm.

Re: Stormy 2017

No storm round here yesterday, today's been a bit gusty, but quite sunny and reasonably nice, so that Storm Brian was a bit of a damp squib given it was meant to cause chaos for the whole country... Grin

 

Of course, Ophelia was a pretty windy night and a rather soggy day, and the preceding orange skies were certainly freaky as heck, and as predicted it caused a lot of damage to parts of Ireland, but the following storm as mentioned was definitely a bit over-hyped...

Re: Stormy 2017

I slept through the '87 hurricane but doubt I would these days with the insomnia.

 

Still no sign of any storm in the far East of Kent.

Re: Stormy 2017

My Dad's house backed on to the local park and during 'The Great Storm' 100+ foot of upturned Horse Chestnut landed in his garden, narrowly missing his bedroom and completely destroying his kitchen extension and conservatory and he never heard a thing.

Re: Stormy 2017

I remember that one. Didn't sleep much that night. Spent the time listening to tiles creaking and moving and several sliding down the roof crashing to the ground.

And my local hire shop only had a single one wheeled roof ladder left. There was a sudden demand apparently.Roll eyes

This type of weather will please those firms who make fencing panels, certainly a few missing or smashed around here.

Re: Stormy 2017

It's mid-October. It is normal to get storms at this time of the year in the UK.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.
