    Horizontal rain. A good day to either stay indoors, or else drive down to West Bexington to photograph the surf.

    Currently throwing it down. And I have to go out in a couple of hours.

    Oh, and Yellow Warnings for both wind and rain for the next two days.

    Seriously considering not going out for my Saturday night pint (or three). It must be bad :(

    So far an anticlimax after all the warnings, but I suppose that there is still time.

    Blowing quite enough here. Maybe not a Hoolie, but certainly noisy enough.

    Fortunately it's not pig country. Having once lived near a pig farm (factory?) in Wiltshire, and sometimes enjoyed the subtle fragrance from it when downwind, I'm very glad.

    Freezing cold all day, woke up about 9, made some breakfast and took it back to bed, I was reading and frankly did not see the point of getting up to sit around and be cold when I could read in bed and be warm. Spent the whole morning with a good book under the covers getting up now and again for another cuppa

    I finally got up from the bed about 2, I mean the cats were not even moving for meals they'd found a snug place (On top of my clean washing of course!) and were not budging!

    Finally knowing I needed a few bits from the shops I set out. Could barely open the front door downstairs then nearly got blown off my feet several times including once where I would have been but hung onto a railing

    Still I did what I needed to do and was glad when I got in I had left the heating on

    It is chucking it down outside and some people are saying tomorrow could be worse but I am okay for now

    Did a lot of my weekly shopping on Thursday, at least enough to keep me going until Tuesday or Wednesday. Had deliveries Friday and today, including two dumpy bags of logs today. Didn't envy the drivers.

    I don't know what autocomplete thinks of me. After "two dumpy bags of" it suggested "heroin". That would get me a long stay courtesy of Her Majesty.

    Been chucking it down overnight and continues to do so. Wind is picking up. Really looking forward to my drive to Nottingham in a couple of hours.

    I think the peak of the storm passed overnight judging by the sound of the wind, plus we had a short power cut around 4.30 this morning. The wind's calmed down a bit this morning. May drive down to West Bexington around midday when the tide will be high and coming in. Hoping for some interesting surf.

    Near us there is a road which dips down as it passes under a railway bridge. The dip in the road is lower than the flood level of the nearby river. The river has burst its banks so as always at times like this the road is flooded and impassable.

    The local Facebook page is awash with comments blaming the flooding on the council for not clearing the drains...!!

    Lots of trees down locally. Strong gales, gusting to 80mph yesterday and overnight and then at about 7am it was like someone had flicked a switch and the wind just died down. Still raining.
