Fidget, lovely hellebores
Wot a day!
At foodbank I offered to take a client and his food bags home for him. However, where he lives a huge hole has opened up in the road. No traffic can pass. I took back lanes that became mud tracks and farm lanes packed with mud and overflowing water. Got stuck in the mud. Managed to get going again eventually,to enter the village from obscure lane. Frustrating, worrying, annoying but managed eventually to get him home.
The weather here right now is worse than I can remember. 83 mph howling wind, heavy rain and pretty scary I guess. Trees down, power off in some places, cables down, property damage ( window blown in locally) roads closed and blocked and, if anything, it seems to be getting worse. Tomorrow morning will tell just how bad it all is.
Already flooded areas are now even worse with high winds blowing the high tides Imto properties. It all seems unreal. Such repeat bad storms on a daily basis it seems over the past month or more.
Take care everybody....it seems most of you will suffer this storm too. Batten down everything ??ou can, make sure every GH window is tightly securely closed, etc etc.
