It's all mostly shingle. That's the hissing noise are the waves recede down the beach. I know because I used to wind surf there and at Selsey. The only place which is sandy is West Wittering at low tide.

 

LOL. Even Bognor is sandy at low tide. Used to be sandy all the way up to the prom but thankfully the local council realised the sea defenses needed strengthening and tons of shingle were put on the beach, over 20 years ago. The shingle doesn't get here naturally.

According to the Reigate Grammar School weather station we are 4mph off the strongest gusts of 24/12/13, at 47mph. This feels like more sustained wind though, house creaking much more. Girl cat and I are cuddled on sofa, she is blissed out with her catnip, I have gin. Boy cat is attempting to get out through the locked cat flap, I believe he is a cat with very little brain.

 

If I open the window or door for my cat Fluffy and he doesn't fancy the weather, he goes to another door hoping the weather will be different. He does this great pose when it's too windy - stretches his front paws out and turns his head away from it - it's like something out of Scott of the Antarctic.

Yamkin, with all due respect I tend to take your posts with a large pinch of salt and a wry smile but I think you are over egging the cake somewhat yet again. Why, and based on what exactly ?

 

What is this very high energy you keep mentioning ?  What do you base your predictions of 100mph winds on ? Why do you think the Met Office will be issuing Red alerts for our region ?  Do you honestly think it's wise to scaremonger based on...........nothing much at all ?  Sticking a Posted Image  at the end of your posts means jack all to be honest.

It didn't feel sandy when I fell off my surf board. Hurt like hell.

It's getting worse out there folks another huge gust just blasted through our 50'ft tall conifers, it's expected to start peaking within the next hour or so.

PEAKING IN THE NEXT HOUR OR SO, PEAKING????!!!! It's howling here with things banging about outside.... You're indicating things are going to get worse!.,.,

Yes it's the same here just south of St Neots, the roof is creaking!

I live alone and no background noise right now, so all I can hear is the wind roaring outside, that is quite a thing.
