What's the weather like?

Recommended Posts

It was very windy here yesterday and last night. All over the country there are various damages, though gladly it wasn't too bad compared to what it could have been (the wind was up to 120 km/h). In the Netherlands we use the scale of Beaufort to denote wind speeds (do you use that too in other countries?). Apparently it was up to 11 at the coast. Here it was probably more between 7 and 10, but it was very stormy. What I've seen all our trees are still there (other than the ones that have been taken down by the treepeople) though some branches have broken off. Several plastic constructions that we had, have broken down (they were nets as protection for our animals). I'm hoping my boyfriend can fix that later. At least there was no roof or car damage or anything worse.

We've had a couple of small branches break off one of our trees but nothing major, lots of bins and recycling boxes blowing around though!  Worst thing was train travel, luckily my line wasn't affected (for once) but lots of other people took about 2 hours to get home from London, and people travelling to other parts of the country had to wait for hours, a lot of the big stations were closed.  Much quieter today thankfully, and nice and sunny.

A beautiful day, sunny with clear skies, and thankfully, the wind has died down!  In fact, it was nice enough to not need a jumper and a fleece this morning. :)

Rained most of last night, in fact it woke me up just after 2.00 as it was so heavy, and windy too, it was lashing the window at one point!  Still pretty wet now.

Grey, grey, grey as always. I'm starting to think I'll never see a blue sky again in this city...

It rained through the night. This morning I had to drop husband at Heathrow Airport, and enjoyed a torrential downpour, hailstones, and then bright sunlight on my return journey.

 

I think the downpour / sunshine theme it set to continue.

We had the hailstorm around an hour ago, it was hideous.  Missed out on the bright sunshine though!

Had the weirdest colour sky before - it looked like a really bad bruise - then it cleared up and was actually blue in a few places!  Now damp and cold again.

Sunny and blue skies! I can't believe it. Excited to see how long it lasts, my bet's no longer than 9.30

Rainy and cold here too, on the east coast.  I rather enjoy walking in the rain, though, which is just as well, seeing how I got caught in a downpour...

I enjoy the wind and rain at times too. Lovely walking weather in light rain only.

raining, windy and so cold again, we had a bad frost overnight will it ever stop and be nice.  I have to say I don't like winter anyway so much prefer the summer days.

Wet.  Got absolutely soaked walking back from Dad's this morning. It wouldn't have been so bad if it was just rain, but I got hailed on as well :irked:

Typically, when I had to go and collect my car from the garage, it was blue skies as I left the house and within a minute or two, the clouds had come in and it was pouring with rain, so I got soaked for a second time.  Even more typically, as I turned into the street where the garage is ... the rain stopped. :roll:  :banghead:
