Very windy this morning. Hope the dish survives the onslaught. And hope that the trees in front of it don't.

The wave frontier T90 at home enduring the storm admirably (centered around 13E). When wind hits from the west is fine but when they pivot to SSW there is a bit of shaking. I reviewed all bolts yesterday, better safe than sorry.
East Herts is getting a fair amount of battering, with gales forecasted up to 70 mph.

Getting a hammering already here, 68mph according to MetOffice. Next doors shed is already dissembling itself!

Checked the signal levels on my dish and it's fluctuating all over the place, though I expect nothing else given the wind strength.

Went from our village into town earlier and all the watercourses and ditches were full. An hour later, the return journey was a nightmare as the lanes were flooded up to a foot deep in places, with torrents of water coursing down and across virtually everywhere. Have now raised the drawbridge.

A couple of food bins are scattered in the road, plus some smaller branches, I'm not venturing out unless I there is no choice.

Lot's of trees in the forest to the south of my bungalow have blown down,
Next doors garden furniture is dancing around their garden,
Motorised dishes have moved on the pole slight adjustment from 0.0 to 0.7 east has corrected for now so will reset mechanically when the wind drops.

I’m tracking the storm on Windy, and hopefully the worst is about to pass, though 40 mph winds are still no joke. I’ve seen my dish shake quite a bit but so far things look ok.
Had a chat to family members in Scotland and the wind isn’t that bad right now, but there is considerable flooding in Dumfriesshire.

Not as bad here as they made out to be. Went grocery shopping - windy but I've seen worse.

Apparently my sister's got a foot of water in her cellar, with her dryer being down there too, and apparently her partner lost his trousers in the water too cos he forgot to ensure they were properly tied at the waist......... :-rofl2
