    It's windy here but not as bad as they're saying on the news. I am planning on going into town but luckily I don't think I'll be swept off my feet.

    Just heard there's been some winds at 91mph wow.

    I'm watching the dustbin men emptying green bins on the street in a force 9 gale...being the usual council operatives they are just dumping the empty bins on the pavement...one by one they are blowing over and sliding about.

    So are they are putting them up against a hedge or wall to prevent this?....Nope!....:mad5:

    Bad here too windy and rain. I hope ordsall hall doesn't leak again. It reopens today. Last time it was like this the great hall leaked. knew they should have fixed the gaps in the Walls when they were doing everything else when it was shut for 2 and a half years.

    I was woken up at 6 this morning by my daughter who was woken by the noise of our 8 ft trampoline with enclosure, hovering across our garden and then lifting into the air and over into next doors garden and crashing down onto their lawn :eek: :eek: :eek:.......I'm just glad noone got hurt and there was minimal damge to the fence between us, just slightly chipped. It could have caused absolute mayhem if it had blown further.
    Neighbour was fine about it and has spent the last hour outside taking it to bits. Watch your trampolines in these winds folks!!

    Its REALLY windy here too.. We have a back door which isnt fitted properly, and you can hear he wind whistling through it :O The rain has calmed down a bit now, but when I got up this morning it was rainin that hard it looked as if a river had overfload into our garden :O
    Trying to get molly out for a wee in this wind and rain is almost impossible, and even when I get her out, she just stands there waiting for me to let her in... I finally managed to get her to have a wee, but she did wait for the rain to calm down first, so I think walks are off until this afternoon, (fingers crossed it stops ranin...
