the wind is being unreasonable
398

WeirdArchitecture · 26/11/2021 20:38

wtf, i am in the north west, few hours back the wind picked up like nothing i have heard in years. I tis FIERCE!

Anyone else experiencing it?

It is extremely powerful and quite awe inspiring. The noise is seriously dark and creepy. Went outside and was almost taken off my feet. Trees bent double, howling, etc.

I hate the bloody wind. It's scary. A few years ago it ripped off half my mum's roof and brought down loads of trees (including 3 huge 200+ year old beech trees that crushed all our walls and electricity and phone lines) - my mum said it sounded like a train ripping through the house. I've been uneasy about the wind ever since.

NE Scotland here, where the wind actually blew me backwards this afternoon, and it's no better now. Forecast is for getting worse before it gets better 😭
Stay safe . .

North East coast here and my garden wall just collapsed and I only have one remaining fence panel! The lid has been blown clean off our large outdoor storage container. Worrying about the trampoline staying put now! Stay safe everyone.

Also in NW. Just had to walk through Manchester City Centre.Oxford Road was a wind tunnel of a very ferocious sort. Could hardly stand up.

YANBU. It doesn’t know where it’s going, what it’s doing, it’s just so unnecessary

I'm east coast Scotland smack in the middle of the red warning area. There are trees down all over the roads, trampolines and caravans blowing away and loss of power in some of the local towns. The noise is unbelievable.

In the NW too! Poor cat came out of her hiding space and was visibly fighting the wind to make it to the front door. Hall full of leaves, but at least kitty is safe and warm now.

YABU I am a windmill and it's very necessary and reasonable.

Grin
I'm also NW. Need to take the dog out later which I'm dreading as it's whipping up round here and I'm picturing us disappearing into the sky like in the Wizard of Oz.

East coast, right in the red zone - it’s so noisy, worse than we got during Hurricane Bawbag and the beast from the east. Really glad the building opposite has just finished some repairs and the scaffolding has gone, I’d be worried it was coming through my windows otherwise.

NW also, I’m quite sure it is the apocalypse. As such I’m eating all of the chocolate and drinking all of the wine just in case. I’d hate for it to be wasted on zombies and cockroaches.
