What's the weather like?

Recommended Posts

It is so windy here today and I know it’s worse further north, stay safe if you have to travel today!

It's insanely windy here too.  Next door's flat-roof has lost its tarpaulin, and a couple of dustbins have gone willy-nilly down the alleyway.  Rain is intermittent.  Bleagh!

We had wind, rain, hail, bit of Donnen und Blitzen too (naturally when I went out to the farm shop to get some bird food), no real damage though. I did a bit of battening down the hatches on Saturday and stacked flowerpots etc, and put the watering cans in the shed.  I had to  retrieve our dustbin lid from halfway down the garden, but apart from a few small things being blown over no real damage, and a lot of surface water but no floods as far as I could see.

 

Hope everyone is safe!

I just had to google what Donnen und Blitzen meant because all I could think of was Santa’s reindeer! Did you notice a lot of birds in your garden in the bad weather? I looked out at one point and had 11 pigeons in mine! 
There are a few trees down near me but nobody hurt by them, luckily. Today we’ve had rain, hail, sun and a bit of snow. I saw cherry blossom buds for the first time this year though, as well as some yellow crocuses and a single daffodil. I love seeing those first signs of spring coming :)

oh yes forgot about the reindeer!  Only a couple of flashes of lightning and claps of thunder, then it sort of went to hail then back to rain.  Bit quieter yesterday but still quite a lot of rain and windy again last night.

 

I didn't notice too many birds, well no more than usual, but a couple of brave sparrows were clinging on to one of the feeders in all the rain, bless them!

 

My purple crocuses are coming out, some have already flowered, and I have quite a few daffodils open or just about to open, and lots of other green bits coming up, no snowdrops though even though I got new ones which I planted at the end of last year.

Another weekend, another storm on the way:hide:!  Nice and sunny today though.

Well it's finally stopped raining after about 24 hours of it, not so windy but very wet.
