  1. I *think* everyones apprehension is focused around how late Wednesdays red warnings came. It seemed Meto didnt realise or think things would be that bad and didnt issue the red warning until it was on their doorstep. I in no way think this will be on that scale and dont imagine for a minute we'll have red warnings for todays. I think (Correct me if I'm wrong) but Wednesdays storm was still a developing low as opposed to this one which is fully matured so that made it harder to predict? I'm just saying I can see why people are trying to read between the lines. I think we can all just safetly assume its not a good idea to be going out tonight
  2. Bit strange their updates in the warnings. They've put us under Amber but I see they've knocked 10mph off the gust windspeeds since this morning. It was 67mph earlier and has now dropped to 57mph for 3am. Oh well I guess we wont know til its here.
  3. all I can say about it out there now is YUK! got soaked and blown about like a rag doll and the wind hasnt even started yet! I do hope people choose to have romantic nights in tonight rather than romantic nights out. I have a feeling its going to be ugly later
  4. Happy Balentines Day (as my kidletts call it) xxx Sky is absolutely black here, super fast moving clouds. Going to pop out and do all our buts early so we avoid any wind! stay safe everyone
  5. just came back from early Valentines lunch and saw some AMAZING black skies. Didnt have my camera I managed to get a pic as it was trundling off in the distance when I got home. It dumped a load of hail but no rain. I just said to the OH I hate being indoors when its like that outside and he said I was mad, most people are the other way round! Looks like a Summers day outside now.
  6. morning all very strange looking sky here this morning. If it was colder I'd say it was about to snow but it will probably just rain. Will be following all the great posts in here today and looking forward to JPs thoughts on tomorrows stormage. And Surrey I hope you can floodproof your house today with the sand! Have a great day everyone x
  7. you didnt?! haha its not the rain that concerned me, its the huge trees dropping their branches. I don't think her doggies would've liked to have one of those on their noodles
  8. Just sitting indoors with my littlest under a blanket watching out the window and some lady is standing there screaming at her dogs. Why on earth she would think its a good time to walk them in the park with branches flying off the trees I shall never know. Poor doggies lashing down her and really gusty
  9. Good Morning I've just been out walking for an hour and it is gusting already. I got blown forward on the way and was getting a good workout on the way back! later will be nasty. Yikes, just seen the red warnings I hope everyone stays safe, indoors and out of harms way.
  10. oh Surrey your poor garden its a quagmire bless you! I hope it doesn't get much worse, I'll have everything crossed for you. I'd definately move anything valuable to you off the floor just incase. Some real nasty weather to contend over the next few days...again! It was really bad today, I'd say worse than anything we've had since the end of Octobers storm. Bins were being blown down the road today. Maybe it was just the direction of the wind that made it seem worse, whatever it was it was not pleasant. I'm not venturing out tomorrow that for sure. Stay safe everyone
  11. A big sinkhole has appeared on the M2 wonder if its all the rain we've had? http://www.kentonline.co.uk/kentish_gazette/news/major-kent-motorway-closed-in-12594/
  12. Morning all Absolutely AWFUL here, pee'ing hard and the wind has really picked up too. Not looking forward to walking out in that
  13. Still very quiet here, outside anyway. Inside The Police and Hall & Oats is blaring and Stella flowing nicely..
  14. Evening all I can't keep up with current conditions, was going crazy a min ago and now it's peaceful as anything. Got my camera set up incase we get some T&L. Hope everyone is having a good evening. I'm having my first beer in a long long time so rather enjoying myself
  15. There she blows, smiling as she goes! It didnt seem too bad here in the night, certainly windy and rainy but nothing extreme. I hope everyone is alright and has a great weekend
  16. afternoon everyone, beautiful blue skies and sunshine here at the moment. I might grab a chair and sit in the sun for a bit while its out. Soak up some Vit D! Sending lots of postive, happy and get well soon vibes to all those who could use them and some virtual hugs too xx
  17. Absolutely pouring here. It seems even the birds aren't feeling it out there either. They're all in my loft having some kind of bird AGM. No idea how I'm supposed to sleep with the noise they're making. Part of me is pleased that they're nice and dry, I just hope they're considerate about where they poop...
  18. morning all, grey, damp and generlly miserable here at the moment. I dreamt last night that the whole of the UK was under a Met Office Red warning...this weather is even plaguing my dreams now! I see the rain is on its way, its going to be a wet one! I hope everyone has a great day. The kids have generously given me their lurgy so I shall be indoors under a blanket with copious amount of tea, biscuits and chocolate, windows open and listening to the rain.
  19. afternoon all. Total change here in the weather now. Grey, raining and really gusty. Wind tried knocking me off my feet just now when I popped out for some shopping. Glad to be back indoors thats for sure. My hair is way past distressed....
  20. morning all. Bright, breezy and dry here in Faversham at the moment Hope everyone has a great day and stays safe later x
  21. evening all, hope everyone is ok. My chimney is howling and it sounds like a constant rumbling out the front in the trees so its getting underway. I popped out the back and the wind must be coming from a different direction tonight as we are usually pretty sheltered out the back but the wind is ripping through the garden.. Might have to move the little one out the front bedroom again, those trees are creaking badly. I just saw Storms thread from fergies twitter they've updated the warning to Amber for SW. Shame it wasnt done earlier seeing 15,000 have lost power, how will they know? ETA: I guess they'll know by looking outside LOL Im tired ignore
  22. I know, no doubt it will be grey and moody out there soon but I'm enjoying it while its bright p.s rain alarm is going off haha
