Early this morning I was awaken by a big roll of thunder then heard the rain lashing down. When OH got up the bedroom light was flickering and he found the pull-cord was a bit wet so he turned off the switch to all our lights so cue candles and a lamp. There must be a bit of pointing in a ridge tile or something that had come out but we can't see any damage. Later on the winds dropped then we had a sudden blast of high winds and rain but nothing much since. Just had a phone call from a visitor who can't get to us because all the roads and lanes that lead to us are completely flooded.  :ohmy:
Spring always comes when we sow the seeds of life.

Weíve lost 2 fence panels so far but every cloud has a silver lining, I was hoping to procure some such to enclose the bottom half of the Chicken pen so looks like Iím halfway there 🙄😊  :ohmy: :)

Again I have used my iPad emojis & they donít show now, they send to, anybody any dead why they donít? Itís not just me I notice other members show the same numbers & # etc. Is it since the upgrade? Does a swith need flicking?  :D

The SMF forum software appears to only be able to resolve and correctly display its own built-in emojis - iPad and Android emojis just display the code.
John knows far more about it than I do of course, although I'm sure he would have flicked the switch by now if it were that simple.
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

I've put wires across the front of the greenhouse to stop, hopefully, the double doors popping out - like they did in the storm a few weeks ago.
I've put bolts through the top sliders and spring clamps to hold the doors together in the middle. Later I'm putting some repair tape along the door edges, because the brush draught proofers don't actually seal the gap very well  ::)

Well all that was worth the effort because It's still standing in one piece:) As it's still quite gusty this morning so I'll leave it sealed up for now...
I've lost a fence panel and now have 2 wobbly posts that'll need sorting soon though :( but it could have been a lot worse...

When I look at what has happened here (although I haven't look upstairs yet !), I consider myself very lucky compared to many.    Those terrible floods again for so many folk.   Mrs Bouquet

Seems to have been as much a rain event as a wind event. Winds in my area less severe than expected, so my greenhouse should have withstood it. The flooding looks quite bad further north and west (Lancashire and Cumbria again!!).

It's certainly be wet up here in Northumberland with all the normal rivers escaping so it will  have been jolly wet over in Cumbria too.
