The glass has just shattered on the door of my big greenhouse and as that's the side facing the wind, I don't suppose there will be much of it left in the morning. * sob*

Sorry to hear that. Between you, John and a few others I've sworn off greenhouses for life.

Likewise, we're going to get a polytunnel when we have the correct situation. The fun some acquaintances had replacing glass and gathering it up put us right off.

Sunny and most of the wind is over. May get a load out.

All is calm this morning, only the door shattered, and ripped off frame,  so have to patch it up somehow until I can get a proper job done, more wind forecast for later though...
Strangely the top rollers were snapped in half by the wind, weird  :wacko:

Glad to hear the damage wasn't as bad as feared Mum.  ;)

Storm Brendan certainly seems to have given the Beeb's weather forecasting site the run-around - as of yesterday, today's forecast was for severe gales and rain here.

As of today, it is for a fresh breeze and rain (90% at 0700, but it was actually bright and dry.)
Still got a yellow wind warning coming into force from noon though!  ::) :unsure:

That's what I'm still worried about, the tape didn't want to stick to the glass in the pouring rain  :( so  the poly sheet is only held on with pegs and string atm and they've forecast gusts of 50mph here this afternoon  :ohmy: I sure hope they've got it wrong!

12c feels like 7.  Rain has eased, but not stopped.  Winds SSW gusting 57.   My greenhouse, which was swaying this time last year, is covered and held together with brown parcel tape, it looks like the blitz, but so far so good !!

Strong wind, rain, general misery in abundance.

Clear sky, no wind and just a little chilly.

As our bedroom is on the corner of the house it was so noisy we moved into the back bedroom last night as it was quieter.  Interesting journey to Freshwater this morning, thank goodness the van is diesel and coped with driving through the flooded roads.  Must admit, lovely afternoon, but going down the Military Road  this evening and looking at how much water is lying on the fields and speaking to a couple of farmers who have crops that should have been    planted by now, we are going to suffer later in the year from this.

About 12.30, I thought the sun is out, and ran down the hills for the 1pm bus.    Walked along the prom, (I never take living at the sea for granted, I consider myself very lucky !).     It was very sunny, but so windy and quite cold.  Didn't manage as far as normal, as it was play havoc with my Hearers.  Cut back, in the sheltered high street.   I was really pleased I made the effort.     My lips tasted very salty when I got in.  :D

Worse weather than Brendan at it's peak. Howling winds and lashing with rain. We walked to a club according to wind direction to give Eldest the most shelter from walls and hedges.
