Storm 1st January 2014

Post by fern Rob » Wed Jan 01, 2014 1:06 pm

I thought that the other storms where bad where I am but not like today. I really think some serious damage may be done. the wind is howling and the rain is banging on the windows. Not a great start weather wise for 2014.

My blowaway GH fell apart and I put it back together in the gales and rain.
The plastic cover is torn, will have to replace it once the stormy season is over.

It's chucking it down and blowing a gale and it's dark at 2:30pm like at dusk.

I got a good days gardening in this morning. Rain only reached here at sunset, no winds yet. Think I prefer light frosts to gale force winds, at least until my windbreaks grow. :P
