    Cumbria looks like having a bad time of it today…and a good chunk of Scotland too.

    Looks like Red weather warnings coming out for Lakes

    I’m taking the positives, we’re finding all the lost tennis and cricket balls from the last couple of years, all blown back out of the hedge and trees.

    Uplift Scotland today

    And this on the M90

    Would be more of a big deal if it wasn’t mostly the access road to the Forth Bridge πŸ˜† Good planning that.

    Working at Stockport Rail Station tonight, getting loads of updates from north of us, sounds like total carnage north of preston.

    Still wet and wild south of Glasgow, Mugdock might be damp in the morning πŸ™‚

    According to that windyty site, (thanks, scaredy!), it’s blowing at 26mph here in Chippenham, blown the wheelybins over out the back. Glad I had new fencing put up earlier this year, there’d be even less left now.
    Hope nobody gets too badly damaged oop north during this storm.

    Scaffolding outside our flat is making all sorts of scary noises. Had a few slates off the roof last night. On a positive note the stove is going like a jet engine.

    The rain and wind doesn’t seem to have stopped for weeks here on the Fylde Coast. Our back garden is turning into a lake and I think our hens are developing webbed feet.

    All the train lines west of Skipton are closed now. Which screws up my plan for a tailwind-only ride tomorrow. πŸ™‚
