Hurricane Bawbag II

Recommended Posts

Fences on both sides of the back garden smashed to bits :angry: Guttering down :angry: just waiting on the garden shed disintegrating and coming through the kitchen window. Meanwhile all street lighting has gone and every plastic bag and bottle from every neighbours bin is now in the front garden :angry:

Stay safe folks

We've also lost a big section of our fencing, samsc. No doubt the factors will be charging us £500 each to replace it.

It's wild out there. My wind chimes are in big trouble.

That's going to appear in overheard in the West End.

Hurricane Foxache!

Just seen the news report... it look grim. :( We had some of that awful gusty, face biting, sleety, slideyways rain this morning ourselves -uncharacteristic for the Souf - reminded me of many New Years spend in Tighnabruaich.

Sam, I think Dex thinks you're describing the opening scenes from the Wizard of Oz. ....:lol:

A bit seriously, take care folks....

Certainly the red alert warnings, which highlighted the gale earlier in December, were nowhere to be seen until the windows were almost coming in. Even though it was a much worse storm.

I don't think we'll even have seen half the damage as yet. Potentially there will be plenty of employment for the roofers.

Hope you all are recovering ok from the storm. This is traditionally the worst time of year for storms here too though lately we have had a heatwave with dry lightning and after a very wet year and lots of growth in the surrounding forests and grasslands it is a bit worrying to think we are having heat waves this early in the fire season...oh well, fire-evacuation bags packed and insurance paid up so not much else we can do about it - she'll be right :unsure:

Good to hear from you, Gayle:)

Mother Nautre is her own mistress right enough. You have had more than your fair share of enviromental crisis over there, Gayle. Keep safe.

We're fine here - no dramas. There's nothing worse than big wind storms - so scary. We recently removed a big gum tree that was overhanging part of our house and lucky too as we had a huge storm a few weeks later that toppled lots of trees around.

You are very wise to take precautions Gayle. There are lots of beautiful trees down in Glasgow. I am amazed that there were so few casualties after the gales we have had recently.

and to be honest i never noticed a thing....went to bed and slept thro it all...although my house does face the opposite way from the wind

only realised we had had a windy(ier) night than usual when i logged into facebook n read all the posts.

loads of trees down the next day but no damage to any houses or anything that i could see in the area

It must have been low down winds then tig because I thought the high rises would be swaying like jelly

We're only three up, tig, and I thought the windows were going to come in. It's like springtime today.
