  1. Oh I know, that's why I pointed out that as I missed 87 last night was the worst I've heard.
  2. I've never heard winds like that (I slept through '87) here before. Woken at about 4am and it genuinely felt like my ceiling artex was going to fall down and the flow of wind through my loft into my bedroom opened the door.
  3. That reminds me of this that landed in my inbox the other day, might be of interest. https://www.merriam-webster.com/words-at-play/what-is-bombogenesis
  4. It's fine, I just had to close it and now I can't hear the wind as well. The house can feel it though.
  5. I had my window open slightly on that half latch setting (I'm not sure what it's called) and the wind has blown it open!
  6. Thanks, I tend to agree. I'll enjoy the wind (whilst also hoping nobody gets hurt) from my warm house while I plough through some work instead. I am lucky, my thoughts I with the increasing number on the streets these days.
  7. I'm just trying to work out if the fairly long but not completely necessary journey I had planned for tomorrow (I can do it Thursday instead) is worth postponing. No point driving unless I have to in winds like that.
  8. Suddenly windy here in South Woodham for the last hour of the year.
  9. Yes, it's just a bit weird. I photographed a wedding yesterday and it was absolutely freezing, when I left the venue in Thorpe Bay last night the minor roads were icy and slippery already and when I arrived home all the cars were properly iced over. I woke up and it's raining and positively balmy now! Since 3am it's gone from -3 to plus 5!
  10. It's just turned to snow here in South Woodham. Obviously I really can't see it settling but nice to see quite a few flakes Christmas week!
  11. Ha the elevation of my local well known hill (sledging hot spot and they used to build radars up there) is only about 205 foot above sea level! Lower than your low valley. My house is only 19ft. Essex can be so boringly flat.
  12. I've been watching the temperature drop for a couple of hours now and the rain is on the turn right now. Looking more like snow than rain now here in South Woodham.
  13. Had a brief respite of about 10 minutes and it's coming down nicely again in SWF. This is so much more than I expected.
  14. These days I personally class a white Christmas as snow when the decorations are up, it's just asking way too much to happen on the day. My tree went up yesterday so result!
  15. Finally I'm not complaining. The kind of snow fall you wish to wake up to here in South Woodham.
