Horribly windy the night before last, kept me awake most of it (the cat took the rest by prowling around being.. the cat) as I worried over the state of our roof, over possibility of the trees coming down.
Next morning, although clearly there had been enough rain water to make a new stream down our green lane, judging by the piles of driftwood.. and the new beach at the bottom, the only real damage was four panes of glass from one of our greenhouses.
The veg beds had puddles of standing water… which is a bit much since they are higher than the lane, and there is debris everywhere. We fixed the greenhouse, then decided to go for walk to see the river. We are not that close to the river here, but we could hear it roaring from our back door, and it was in full scary spate – sort of don’t fall in or you wont make it high.
Glad to have got through another storm ok. Only now the gales are back, the house is rattling as the wind blows, and I can feel another sleepless night coming on..
