Dennis has arrived.
The very directional rain means I now know it’s time to rewax the elbows of my waxed jacketPosted 1 year ago
**** hell look that that ferry!!
I had a staff member worried about getting off Isle of Gigha yesterday. Apparently the forecast was easing, they loaded the ferry, headed out then wouldn’t / couldn’t get alongside to offload back on mainland for over half an hour….Posted 1 year ago
Hee-haw in Edinburgh
The flight from Manchester that did a go-around says otherwisePosted 1 year ago
Flightradar24 has been great viewing today. 3hrs for EasyJet to get from Luton to Stanstead….. unfortunately they were aiming for Inverness (gave up after the second attempt at landing)

Today has been a bit windy and not too heavy rain (Skipton area) but about an hour ago it got quite a bit nastier.
Quick edit: I think we are just entering hoolie mode!Posted 1 year ago

Getting windy and horrible outside now, wood burner on, chicken Zorba for tea.Posted 1 year ago
It’s certainly more Dennis Hopper than Dennis Thatcher round here.
Just made it through the local floods ( at about 600ft above sea level, thanks Devon clay..) wouldn’t have liked to try on an hour’s time, there was certainly a bow wave…Posted 1 year ago
Some speculation Storm Ellen might be the end of next week. That was on a weather related group, not the ExpressPosted 1 year ago

Spent the day on a pub crawl around Manchester, had the occasional windy bits but nowhere near the rain I was expecting. Was even in an admittedly damp but not raining pub garden (the Marble Arch of anyone is interested) for a while.Posted 1 year ago
Is it still full of posties? Usually is.Posted 1 year ago
Well my idiot neighbour who forced the scaffold ers to put a tin roof and wrap the erection in plastic is now paying for the pleasure
Last weekend ripped loads of the plastic to shreds early this evening the builders were desperately trying to make the bungalow weather proof with tarps as the roof is off
It’s in complete darkness now so I am guessing the power is off as they had water running down the internal walls
Who plans roof off extensions in February, 50m from the sea. Div.
And forecast is for. 60kn tomorrow and its been 45kn today, still he gets off using my drive without asking, ditto the builders so I have no sympathyPosted 1 year ago
Wind ramping up here on the Sarf Coast after a brief lull as we’ve had Mrs M’s mate round with the perpetual motion mouth, so even Storm Dennis couldn’t get a gust in edgewise whilst she was here, but he’s making up for lost time now she’s gone.Posted 1 year ago
Not been flying today, but I’m in tomorrow when it’s due to be bad again. Was airport was that video compilation? The video states max 28 kts, but it looks much worse.Posted 1 year ago
I’m a bit disappointed i listened to the forecast, I had a weekend booked to Exmoor. Probably bad there at the moment to be fair but in Bristol it seems pedestrian. Appreciate others may be feeling it real though.Posted 1 year ago
Roof tiles are rattling and clattering disconcertingly loudly here in the Stroud Alps. The wind is gusting quite enthusiastically.Posted 1 year ago
Just got off the phone with my mum in Crickhowell, they’ve had to move the car to higher ground as the lane is a river! The town’s cut off due to high River levels, which is pretty normal but the worrying thing is their cellar is filling up rather rapidly. They have a pump in there that usually copes with any flow into it (house is built on an old pond so water in there is normal when the river is in the fields but it normally comes in at roughly a foot every 3 hours) and can clear a foot of water every 30 mins or so but even with it going flat out it’s rising roughly a foot an hour. Neither of them are in a fit state to go down and check it so their neighbour is checking it for them, no way I could get into town if I tried!
Cardiff is just very wet and windy in comparison!Posted 1 year ago
Correction on all of that, water is now in the house! Their power is off and the lane is backing up rapidly, that means the storm drains have failed. The whole street is helping them to evacuate with all the others that are lower than them. Nothing I can do right now so bizarrely I’ll be going to work in an hour while they get to safety!Posted 1 year ago

Our fence didn’t survive. Mrs Weeksy spike to next door about it yesterday actually as it’s his responsibility. I don’t know whether she’ll be happy or troubled, but it does at least bring an answer to “you think that fence will be ok?”Posted 1 year ago
Crickhowell looks proper bad, they have been rescuing people with the helicopter this morning. The whole of the Usk Valley and the South Wales Valleys are having a hard time of it. We are cut off but if I needed to the Landrover would not be worried about the flood on the road here. it’s only about 2 feet deep and always floods there. Supposed to be driving to Scotland tomorrow for a mates funeral. That trip is looking interesting!Posted 1 year ago
Dennis seems to have finally run out of rain here.Posted 1 year ago
Fresh snowfall this morning.Posted 1 year ago
Flashing has leaked on one of my chimneys. Annoying and I’ll have to fork out to repair, but in the scheme of things it’s not too bad.Posted 1 year ago
Our road is closed due to flooding. Lots of cars not trusting the signs and taking a closer look but no one has attempted it yet. The two cars that were stranded there earlier this morning have now been removed. It’s entirely a drainage issue as it always floods in exactly the same spot, we’re probably a metre lower than the road but never have an issue.Posted 1 year ago
