Once again the west seems most likely to suffer flooding. Heavy rain sweeps the country tonight and then again Monday and Tuesday. Tuesday also sees gales for many especially southern coastal counties.
Tis blowing up a right old gale here on the south coast on Cornwall. Fishermen didn't go out this morning so I thought it might be like this. Lots and lots of rain, big surf and very gusty. Picking up more now the day's drawing in. DH is supposed to be driving up country tonight but I think he might not bother now as the A38 is awful in high wind.
This seems worse than the reports I've seen so far OYBBK on BBC and others? Do you think it'll get worse down here or start to fade tonight?
It's got very wet and wild here over the last hour or so, gusts rather than steady wind but getting quite noisy. BBC says this is the worst bit for us and it should ease, I think the south coast was supposed to get a bit more sustained bad weather from the forecast I saw at lunchtime? (NE Hants here)
Gusts have been quite consistent here in south Devon since about 2pm, the rain is lashing down and DS1 was blown across pavements and the tree at the back of us is bending over quite a bit. Give me snow over this any day!
Ugh, DH is now talking about getting in the car this evening and driving up. He's got to go almost all the way to London. Then back again tomorrow late afternoon. I really don't want him to go, he's exhausted and the weather is foul and I need him back here in one piece for our youngest to go into hospital on Wednesday morning, grr and .
It is quite loud out there! I can hear the sea roaring and the waves crashing on the shoreline. I have no windows open. On our top floor where we have no double glazing it's like being out at sea, especially with the lighthouse flashing on the horizon. Quite cool really. If only I could persuade DH to not go out driving in it though
It's been quite quiet here today - the wind and rain picked up around 3.15, yep school kicking out time but then went off. Definitely not as bad as it's been the last couple of nights though. We even had sun this morning
Sparkling Found the song Heat Wave, on you tube. Showing my age here. It was from the film musical There's No Business Like Show Business, with Marilyn Monroe singing it. Words We're having a heat wave, a tropical heatwave The temperature's rising, it isn't surprising You certainly can, Can Can Pity the video is of bad quality. Some really good male dancers How I remember these things from decades ago, but can't remember things from a few days ago < peeved face>
I only know the singers of the songs we dance to - at the moment- Olly Murs Trouble Maker is the latest and my favourite and also Come Dance With me Tonight, last year. Also Black Heart by Sooshe. They did use It's raining Men for an old dance, but it made it too fast for me so didn't do it. < poor old thing me>
