Dennis has arrived.
Wind has picked up, it’s lashing down and not due to stop until midday tomorrow. For those in the valley bottoms my heart goes out to you, it’s not looking good for Calderdale and Rossendale again.Posted 8 months ago
My planned trip to Lewis is now cancelled as the ferry has berthed for the day and is subject to further cancellations over the next couple of daysPosted 8 months ago
Just raining here in Cardiff, and a bit windy. Biking is probably off the agenda.Posted 8 months ago
well, it’s surprisingly both neither particularly windy or rainy in Calderdale…Yet. I’m pretty sure I’m going to be bailing out later though.Posted 8 months ago
A bit of a hooly here.Posted 8 months ago
Getting a tad breezy and moist in Earby.Posted 8 months ago

Getting it full in the face here on the edge of Dartmoor. Of course living on top of a large hill facing SW doesn’t help.
Power failed at 11pm, Western Power were up a telegraph pole in the field fixing it by midnight, and it came back on a 2am- top blokes.
Both roads down are liable to flooding, so we shall see what the day bringsPosted 8 months ago
@nickc – business as usual earlier in HX4. On the train to Manchester now…. The rain is definitely coming your way. ☹️
Stay safe everyone!
Projected River level in HB looks bad but hopefully not as bad as last week. Fingers crossed for everyone in the Calder Valley

Intermittently hammering it down in Lancs. Squeezed a soggy 10km run in this morning but probably staying in rest of day. Starting to see a few gusts, due to get higher later.
Neighbour replaced fence panels midweek, why oh why didn’t they wait until Monday?Posted 8 months ago

Rossendale? Kids have been skiing this morning and it’s just ‘a bit wet’
I came down from Cragg Quarry yesterday afternoon and i was blown all over the place. It’s not that bad here just yet.Posted 8 months ago
MrsMC managed to get across the Channel last night before it got too bad 🤞Posted 8 months ago

Somewhere on the coast would be my recommendation.Posted 8 months ago

Judging by the amount of shingle on the seafront shown on Spotlight last night – Sidmouth.
Pics at home 30 minutes apart. Doesn’t look much yet but I think next door may have a problem. They only moved in recently and I’m not sure how much they know about the flood risk. Will keep an eye on things…

Was sunny in hants this morning and dry. Road ride before rain sets in I say to myselfPosted 8 months ago
Step out of the front door and it’s a gales f8
Put road bike in car and drive 30 mins to put in some hill reps away from the coast, roads damp but fine. Managed 5 before the heavens opened and the going back down became risky business. Then had a coffee and had to listen to all the cliche cycling balls that tards spout, pavement s, red lights, headphones,
I wonder if it wasn’t deliberate and aimed at me to get a rise, asswipes
All the Crown Estate forests and parks near me are shut.Posted 8 months ago
Not that bad near Leeds airport at the moment. Wind has started to pick up since I went out at 10 am to go to the gym, but rain so far has just been on and off normal winter.
Still glad we managed to grab an hour on the cx bikes yesterday afternoon, as though it’s not as bad as expected (yet) I wouldn’t be out on the bike. Saw one guy out and it looked pretty grim.Posted 8 months ago
Just in time for our wedding this weekend! Down near Dartmoor, the roads are like rivers.Posted 8 months ago
Luckily finished delivery super early before the wind picked up and the rain began. Put some marketing carp in the frame ready for Monday and things were certainly interesting cycling home 30-odd minutes later, gusty winds couldn’t decide which way to blow and rain getting heavier by the minute!
So glad I’ve been home for almost two hours, it’s been awful outdoors for at least an hour up near the top of the SO18 Hill.Posted 8 months ago
Damp and breezy here on the Sarf Coast near Eastbourne. It’s not really arrived yet. The sea was rough and when we were down on the beach at low tide earlier. Birling Gap beach is closed as there have been numerous cliff falls this week.Posted 8 months ago

I drove to the supermarket quite early this morning and, heading out up the road was a small group of roadies, presumably thinking “we’ll head out early, before it gets too bad”.
Driving back maybe an hour later and the same group was coming back down the road, absolutely drenched. It had started raining heavily as I arrived at the shops and they’d been caught in the full blast of it. Poor folk, they looked properly miserable.Posted 8 months ago

You have my sympathy! Just off the edge of Dartmoor here…

Just lots of water about here in Cardiff still, no sign of any damage from winds. If anything it’s getting calmer! Forecast for tomorrow is worse though.Posted 8 months ago
Interesting that they seem to have the army on standby already. Not sure they can hold back the rivers, but it avoids the Fishlake PR disaster when they weren’t aroundPosted 8 months ago
