wave Thanks folks.  It is still raining and the wind is rising again.  It is howling down the chimney!  I am cosy and warm indoors and I am sure Tina is too!

I am very glad to hear that!  It's a bit blowy down here but my Privet in a pot is still standing, so not too high a wind.  It has been just over 12 degrees today.

I'll try that again!

wave Wow, it isn't half wild out there now, rain and wind.   Can't see the sea, too dark, but the ferry has stopped.  Baton down the hatches!!

It has been blowy but not wet today, until this evening when it did rain for a while.  My privet in a pot still standing, as is my new standard lavender.

I'll try that again!

Another wild, wet and very windy night.  I rang up the Council on Monday to request that our road be swept and the drains cleaned.  The gutters are full of mud, rotting leaves and debris from the road and the drain outside our house is completely blocked so water is running into our drive.  A very helpful lady took details and the road sweeping lorry has been today.  No sign of the drains being cleared yet but it's a start.

Windy all day and heavy rain on and off. Should we start a 2016 version of this thread?
