Down in Cornwall at the moment with the inlaws and the babies and.....
It's peeing it down here and I just spent 30 minutes realigning their Sky dish with nothing more than a ladder, pliers and a Sky box signal meter, which is useless.
Trees are the issue here, which have grown, so just raised the dish on the pole and mildly realigned it. The Sky box signal strength and quality now read about about 2/3s of the arbitrary scale but some channels are still breaking up. The dish needs a proper relocation really.
Not creaking here (yet??), but you can certainly hear the wind getting up.
PS: had to fix and clean a semi-blocked kitchen sink drain (cut the outside pipe, jet wash that in both directions, jury-rig re-joining them with SA tape until I can fit a proper push-fit joiner when the weather is better!) - glad I'll not have to do that tomorrow.
Its been blowing a hooley & hosing it down most of the day here. The wind does seem to have decreased the last hour or so but the dishes have been taking a battering in the storm today - Ive been monitoring the Reuters feed much of the day & noted severe break up in the strongest gusts several times.
