Wind - not another fart thread

Haven't seen it so strong in a long time in Portmahomack. Tiles and windows rattling. Fear for the roof. High tide just past and are still here but huge breakers rolling in. If I wasn't so concerned about the house, it would be spectacular.

Stay next to Pentland Hills. Yep, it's a bit blustery, but nothing like the forecast. Seen more wind after a Saturday night Madras.

Just a standard winter gale up here in Lewis. Winds only reaching between 60 and 70 mph. If it wasn't for the snow the wife would have had washing on the line today.

Supposedly its going to be over by midday.  However, it will be absolutely Baltic.

Temp around 2 or 3 + but with wind chill will feel about -5 or -6 !

For those attending, my tip would be to imbibe the usual precautionary 6 pints of ice-cold beer, which will ensure that they are well protected against the elements.  :icon14: 🍻

 

It's certainly a bit "breezy" down here in the eastern Borders.

Quite right. "Swimming pool? That's the North Sea over there! Get in!"

 

Hope there's no kite flying, or bouncy castle's. Some kids will be picked up by their parents later on, in Denmark.

Its currently snowing here.

No power at present.

Ive never heard anything like it.

Know how you watch this world om bbc and they go to the Arctic and you hear the wind. Thats how bad it currently is. 

Blew over the shed onto the car. My daughters swing is sitting on the east coast main line.

 

When i say its blowing i mean sustained winds of 84 mph. 

When i had electricity I couldn't hear the TV for the wind. 

 

This is scary

You know you're getting old when you start paying close attention to and analysing the various whistling and howling of the wind and fearing the worst for the structural future of your property.  :(

Power in Lundin Links just back on after about 45 minutes outage.  It is blowing a hoolly, not been as bad since Beast from the East.  Just sent the wife out to make sure our bins are still standing, the chooks are safe and our various pots and garden benches are all still in one piece.  She has thankfully come back safe and sound.  Little does she know I will be sending out again in a couple of hours to carry out more safety checks😀😀

Bet the Party Pack's are cool.

 

Used to maybe get a Sherbet Dib-Dab in mine, if you were really lucky.

 

This lot will get a whistle, goose fat, some hand warming gel & a shiny space blanket.

 

That'll look dead cool in the group photos.👍🏻

I was 50/50 over getting the train up for the game tomorrow, but I'm glad I haven't booked.  It'll probably take a while to assess any damage and get the railway moving again.  Looks like Whitby Town in the FA Trophy for me.

Reston, just off a1 near Eyemouth. 

Some of my roof tiles are gone!!!!

My garden fence is in the field with the sheep. 

 

This is worse than anything I've ever been through. Eyemouth harbour road is flooded with a storm surge. 

 

Cannot see the trains on tomorrow to Edinburgh from Newcastle, Dunbar, n berwick.

A1 is closed in both directions. 

 

The noise of that wind. 

Alarms going off left right and centre. 

Not had power now for 2 hours.

Poor sheep, coos and horses in the field.

Hospitality tomorrow, mate !

Single Malts will be like a sleeping bag !

Picked up a bit through here. Not enough to blow a wheelie bin over yet. 

 

Some fun in the skies tonight for those who have FR24. Wouldn't like to be on any of them though. Belfast-Glasgow flight circled for ages, attempted to landings and has now decided to go back to Belfast.

Just had a look at that. Flight Radar ?

Loganair has just gave up landing as well. Edinburgh not faring any better. 

Not a great fan of flying, glad I'm in the hoose !

Aye flight radar. Bristol flight looks to have given up on Edinburgh and might be heading to Prestwick.

The easyjet from Bristol has one last attempt at Glasgow. If they can't make it they're going to Belfast on minimum fuel. 

 

ATC earning their money tonight. 

 

Edit. Landed at Glasgow.

Just lost all our downstairs lights in a surge of electricity caused no doubt by the wind and the breaker won't reset. My Dad, who suffers from dementia, is very confused by the temporary lamps we've put in place and acting up, and our electrician can't get to us for a few days. Oh, and I was covid/flu jabbed today and waiting now to see if I'll have any reaction. Lying on my bed now listening to the storm outside and random things whacking against the windows. Life is never dull. :)

Cheers, TRM. 👍 Hopefully my Dad will get used to the "new normal" until we can get the lights sorted out.
