It's scary here in Flintshire Suzanne, thought I heard thunder a few mins ago as well. The wind is now screaming down the chimney and the lights are flickering :-0


Suzanne Report 18 Apr 2013 11:58

Terrible wind here.
Suzanne I often go to Rhosneigr for windsurfing - is it too blowy for that?
I always then retire to the Oyster Catcher if you know it.

Very windy down here in Sussex.

Shhhh ... the awning on Dizzi's caravan, has now turned itself inside out & become a caravan cover :-| :-|

Sorry about your shed roof Suzanne.

I was kept awake by something rattling on the roof, thought it was our TV aerial, but it's still there, and tiles intact.(thankfully)

Check out

Extremely windy here too and it scares me!
I mentioned on another thread this week that the storm of Jan 2012, took two brick walls and 4 sections of fence panels ( all about 6ft x 6ft each)
Damage was in excess of £4800


Suzanne Report 18 Apr 2013 18:00

if you went wind surfing in Rhosneiger yesterday you would have been blown to Australia by now :-D
dont think The Oyster catcher is still there,think it was a restaurant wasnt it?

have not seen news yet,but the local radio claimed winds were over 90mph on Anglesey :-)
