We have a cloud cover here, but it is ok out, there was some rain in the night, but much less than yesterdays rain.

 Are we having fun yet? I am!

I have just spoken with Danuta, she was without power for about 12 hours yesterday and, whilst that is back on, she has no internet access.  She says it is still very squally but not as bad as it was.  There has been no damage apart from a neighbour's tree coming down just about 6 feet from his house.  No doubt she will get back to us as soon as t'interwebs are mended.

I'll try that again!

That is good Toni.

Here it was dry to start and as I was just about to leave the house and go to my nearest large town, the wind got up and the rain bucketed down, it was very unpleasant, so I diverted to plan B, my local small town- got all I needed except a hair product that I can only get in the big town, so that will have to wait. It eased for a while but it is getting very dark again now, so more rain I should think. I realised today I left my umbrella somewhere in London when I went for speech therapy, I think it was in a café, and when I left it was not raining, which would have prompted me to go back in for it if it was. It was a stormproof one, guaranteed not to turn inside out in the wind.

 Are we having fun yet? I am!

Danuta asked after you Tina and I was able to tell her that you are fine.

I'll try that again!

My pleasure Tina.  Snowing you say?  Please keep it to yourself, I certainly don't want to battle with the white stuff.  Danuta said that she had had hailstones.

I'll try that again!
