Rained so hard yesterday, part of my carport collapsed.   Another job for the men !   Today some sun, then some hail, only 9c with with NNE winds.  The sky is very dark now, but a little chink of sun has found its way out  :D
That should be covered by your house insurance. Hope so for you!

Pitiful drizzle on and off today, but still had to whip out the hosepipe this evening.

Cannot make another insurance claim, still 6 months into the pipe under floor.
Only maximum 9c today a bit blowy, I think it is building strength for later.  Not raining yet but I think it will be soon.

I think you should check that - otherwise you've got no cover if the house burned down or something. Try contacting them, the worst they can do is say no.

Grey skies, around 6║C, wind getting up but best of all nearly a whole millimetre of rain so far. That's a whole litre of the wet stuff per square metre. With luck, a lot more to come. Yes, it's a bank holiday!

We had a little drizzle yesterday and short sharp shower late yesterday evening - better than nothing I suppose ;)

Wind has picked up considerably and the rain has just started :D We're forecast rain all day as well.
Night time temps look like they're going to pick up at the weekend so maybe I'll start sowing my tender crops.

I related that badly.  Yes I am fully insured with no limits etc.   However the insurance companies are very clever at saying well you havent maintained it.    I just cannot be bothered after the last 6 months debacle.

Some friends of ours had a huge battle with the insurance when their house burned down. The funny thing was they won each argument and ended up with over twice what they originally claimed. I think they just looked at it as their new hobby.

Meanwhile, the winds have really picked up here and we've had 28mm of rain. Things will be growing again! :)

Bleating down with rain and gusty winds to boot. I still have some daffs yet to flower, some of the trees round here look as if it's still winter and I have  quite a good tan. DER??? :(

Wet day and still raining - 10mm so far which is twice the total for the whole of April.

Fair old wind from the SW which should be a milder direction, but with the air temp only 7.6C it sure don't feel warm to me out there!  :ohmy:
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

We've now got sunshine but still cool and windy. So far we've had 54mm of rain. More due tonight. Phew!
Meanwhile in Sheffield the desert sands are burying the streets :) - Sorry JayG

A tornado warning here, just ended.  We dodged a bullet, no damage.

There may be damage to the north of us, where radar signature indicates debris in the air.

We had two very short showers yesterday that really did nothing.  The wind has really picked up during today but no rain whatsoever.    It is very dark though.  Not looking forward to the drive to work tomorrow along the Milly as we always have what we call 'wobbly wheels'  when the gusts of wind catch us.  In some places we are only 8 feet away from the cliff edge.
