Well I think that may really be an understatement. The weather on Thursday was fierce across the whole of the U.K. and much damage was caused by ferocious winds which then led to tidal surges and swollen seas causing rivers to burst their banks and flood. My heart goes out to all of those that suffered damage as they I write this post. I hope all my readers and anyone else is safe and people soon get back in their own homes if they cannot be in them right now.
The strongest wind recorded last Thursday was 142 m.p.h. That's is kind of strong.
We didn't suffer to badly in my area. We are to far inland for the tidal surges to affect us and I don't live near any rivers so we didn't have to worry about the water but the winds are always a worry and although I don't think we got the strongest gusts they were very fierce. Personally we didn't suffer any wind damage though next door did loose one of their fence panels. This is much to Trojan's delight who keeps being incredibly 'nosey' into their garden but it too much of a wimp to actually venture in as they have a cat...yep, Trojan is scared of the cat!!
I popped up the allotment yesterday when I got that chance a little fearful about the greenhouse and the beehives but all was well when I checked. One pane of glass got chipped in a corner but apart from that everything else was OK. A quick ear to the hives told me that the bees were keeping themselves hidden and warm as I listened to the lovely buzzing. My allotment neighbour lost a pane of glass in his greenhouse so I gave him one of my spare and some new clips so he could get it sorted straight away.
Well this was just a quickie really to say I hope all my readers are well after the recent weather. I will be posting some pic's for you tomorrow and even a reason behind the pics but for now stay warm and safe and enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
