08.47 12th march, storm G just hit with a vengeance, storm force winds driving vicious horizontal rain pounding our windows, the sky has darkened to a grey mist, its bloody freezing, and look like its here to stay. (Midlands)
Storm Gareth is it? Well, at least I've got a name for the big bastard wind that is currently making me seasick with the way it's swaying my building right now. Gusting way past fifty-odd miles per hour according to Accuweather's online page.
Got a fence panel down in the back garden, going to be at least Friday afternoon before the winds drop and I'll be able to get it in place again.
That will really mess with my OCD.
I'll bet the roofers and fencing industry are rubbing their hands with glee!
The big storm a few years back wiped out the whole uk supply of fence panels. Iirc they had to charter a special ships worth from Latvia to bring more in.
It was about the time that Insurers removed fence panels from cover.
