    No winds here - just cold and drizzly (business as usual!) but I am looking forward to the sunny afternoons forecast for the next couple of days.

    Stay safe please, those of you in the paths of storms.

    we've had hail that stayed on the ground for ages, and wind and all my gutters overflowed and my old rainwater tank has split down four rungs from the top. ARGH.

    Need to get a new rainwater tank - now.

    I can't hear the television at the moment, and there's some wonderful bright flashes outside.
    Just waiting for the power to go out now.
