Wednesday - another big storm

We'd heard thunder during the evening - which was strange as I'd not seen any mention of thunder storms on the forecast but the expected storm arrived at around 5.30am with rain and wind smashing onto the bedroom window.  The largest gust registered so far is 72.5mph - although we thought one or two were more than that here.  Managed to go down into the garden during a brief lull in the rain - very difficult to stand in wind like this
Just a very angry and wild looking wind blown sea !
and yours truly was looking rather windblown as well !
Just in case you were wondering what had become of the smaller palm - it's now back upright again - Jim refused to accept defeat and propped it back up  !


  1. Sorry - had to re- do these 2 comments & replies - it all went wrong !

  2. from GG Hooray for the little palm. We saw the framework from the footpath when we walked past last year. It has become a bit of a celebrity in it's own right. well done Jim for saving the little treasure :) P.S storm/wind is just reaching us but not so strong. Luckily we are not in the flooded areas of Surrey but we have minor ones in comparison. Keep safe , by GG.

    The little palm came with us in a pot that used to stand near the pond in the garden in Leicestershire, so we'd hate to lose it. It has withstood lots of gusts over 70mph today - just hope it doesn't pull the fence down ! Pleased you're not flooded, it really does look so terrible - of course the Thames Valley is very dear to Jim's heart. Lots more rain falling today - just what nobody wants. Sue

    My goodness, another one! Probably another to come as there is a huge snowstorm making its way up the eastern coast of the States, and that will no doubt affect the south west after it spins off across the Atlantic. It must seem absolutely never-ending and that you are stuck in this storm-calm cycle., by Lynn.

    reply We've got some kind of weather warning for the rest of the week - Wales had a red one today - we were only orange, gusts of over 70mph - biggest one 79.5mph - when that's during the daytime you really notoice it ! Sue

  4. Back on line,pc has been in for I have missed it !!!!! been thinking about you,when is this awful weather going to stop ? have been catching up on your photo's....even worse than we thought....BBC news has been very sketchy regarding Cornwall....but then they have a lot of areas to cover.We love that walk to Newlyn oh dear ! so many people suffering do feel for them.just can't imagine what it's like.Take care.macca

    1. Welcome back ! We obviously got off fairly lightly yesterday, compared to Wales and accross the midlands and north. There is lots of damage, but I'm sure it will all be repaired - sadly the railway line might take a while - not sure 6 weeks will do it.
      All the flooding looks so terrible - especially the Somerset Levels as it seems to be getting worse rather than better. The Thames is of course the area that Jim was brought up in, and it's sad to see - the Hotels that we stay in has been flooded once, but seems to have escaped at the moment.
      Sorry that you've been off-line - amazing how even us oldies get so used to being able to keep up with all our favourite places etc. Scilly have been having a bad time as both the planes and Gry Maritha have been cancelled due to the weather. Not looking like they'll be flying from Lands End until they get the hard runway done in March ! There is a big chunk out of Lighthouse Pier - I think they have the huge chunks of granite to put back again once the weather has calmed down.

  5. Your windows must be made of strong stuff! They've taken a battering this winter.
    Glad Jim was able to stand the little tree back up. While there's life there's hope!
