We had it yesterday as well!
Supposedly we're due ice and snow and more gales.
Seems a bit better today, it's been very windy the last few days, lots of rain, rivers are near bursting. I had to get out a couple of times to reenforce the covering over the windows in the extension I'm building, that's fun in 60mph windy rain
It's blowing good-oh here. The bird feeder poles are swaying around like a mast in sail and the birds are getting caught unawares and finding themselves going backwards I've unhooked the outside lanterns and taken them into one of the sheds.
I like wind, I like weather, but this weather, dark overcast, windy and wet, is not fun to be out in. Somehow it sets my joints aching
Loads of spring bulbs shooting up though, and the first of the pignuts are just showing feathery leaves an inch high. The days are definitely drawing out
