How windy is it where you are today?
« on: June 14, 2018, 09:38 »
I know it's further north that is experiencing the strongest winds, but it's pretty darn breezy here today (can't post the actual speeds because the local online weather station appears to have been broken for the last couple of weeks.  :() Gusts up to 50mph forecast which is probably about right.

Keep hearing wheelie bins falling over and a few actually escaping down the road, and hardly dare look at the veg and flowers in the garden, even though everything that can be staked and supported has been.
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

It's toppled my corn and a 6ft lemon tree in a huge ceramic pot.  A lot of beans now seem to be crawling on the ground and one tomato plant has also gone horizontal after breaking it's ties.  Nowt too serious though!
It's probably a lot worse up here in NW sheffield  :D

It is very breezy here, but we are on the trailing edge of the storm down here and are getting off mildly.  Sounds pretty wild for other areas - storm winds, high tides and all the trees in full leaf.  Not good  :(

It's very breezy here in Worcestershire, but nothing like as bad as any of you guys further north are having to put up with. I hope none of you suffers any serious damage to crops or property.

Gusts of 60mph are covering everything in leaf-litter and twigs. My broad beans, despite being supported by canes and twine have been flattened. The worst bit is: still no damned rain

We've had a good bit of rain overnight after 5 dry weeks and it's blowing a hooly.  Still raining on and off and there's a lot of leaf litter on the ground and quite a few trees over too.  Need to get down to the allotment to see how the plot coped though.

Apart from the after effects of my hot and spicy pork scratchings last night, just a bit it of a breeze but nothing more.

Rather breezy here too, my broad beans seem to have taken the brunt of it,serves me right for not staking them properly. Couldnít do them today so will go tomorrow & see if I can get them back upright

Same this side of the hill. Dunno if the broad beans will stand up again and suspect some of the brassicas have been snapped. Can't do owt till it calms down overnight.

Had a little damage at home during the early hours.
