Still very windy some violent gusts but it,s dry which is good and the sun is  out at the moment which is nice to see ..
Hope it,s not too bad wherever you are and has not caused too much damage during the night ...

The sun has got its hat on this morning but the clouds are zipping past at the rate of knots in this wind. I reckon they will blow the sun right out of the sky before too long.

thick frost this morning and I had to clean the car before taking my man to see the GP. Careful driving was the order of the day as I soon discovered black ice on the main roads through the forest. The sun was up early and it is still out even now. It looks very beautiful but it is still very darned cold.

Well we had no rain.....but a few suburbs did apparently.
For early tomorrow morning they are forecasting thunderstorms, lets see if they get that right. I love a good thunderstorm

Do you get a lot of lightning without rain Sylv? We tend to have massive rain every time we get thunder & lighning. In my little mind - if you have a thunderstorm - where the lightning sets off a fire, surely the rain should dampen it. But it seems that's not the case there is it?

It REALLY is serious at the moment judging by the news reports. Nore storms on the way this week apparently.  ss:-(

I knew it was bad news when they mentioned those "low pressure bombs" & the 300mph Jet Stream over the Atlantic back in December. No wonder they kept quiet about it at the time - remember we were all puzzled why they didn't make more of a fuss over it? We know why now - they must have known what was in store & didn't want to panic us at the time! Pity the Environment Agency didn't get 'panicked' - a lot of this mess could have been averted.

Well not a cloud in sight at the mo, but very windy. They say the thunderstorms will come this evening now. We usually get rain with our storms but we do have lightning starting fires too.

Saw this clip of Windsor flooding yesterday, but I expect it is the same for all of you.   

Just that I know some of the places there, I couldn't get over how fast the river Thames was flowing.
