It sprinkled a little yesterday but the Sun visited too. It appears I also survived.

It's about 0700 here and I've been awake since 0430.
The wind is gusting to 50mph and forecast to be 65mph by lunchtime.
As far as I can tell, nothing has fallen over or ended up in the next parish... yet.

Our electricity supply is via overhead line so if branches start flying about there's a good chance we'll lose power.
I'm presently looking after a neighbour's house which is supplied by underground cable so if push comes to shove I'll permit myself to use her microwave with explanation and apologies later on.
Said neighbour is due back from Germany this evening but I understand that cancellation of the flight is odds on.

I await meteorological developments.

I ventured out a couple of hours ago and things were not too bad at that stage.

However, on the way back I saw a tree which had snapped clean in two in the front garden of a house.

It wasn't the tallest tree you'll ever see but I wouldn't have wanted to be near it when the top half fell.

I've just been to check the neighbour's house and a few bits of debris were flying around the place.

The wind speed has increased considerably and I am now quite worried as to what might happen over the next few hours.

I'm getting lunch as early as decently possible in the hope that I can finish it before a power cut which is to be expected under the circumstances.

The neighbour's flight from Germany has been cancelled and, looking at FlightRadar24 website, I see several aircraft have had more than one attempt at landing at Heathrow.

That's it. The kitchen awaits!

What is this snow you speak of, some sort of padded grill cover?
