Wet and Windy


The wind is picking up again outside and although the sun is shining and it is dry at the minute you know it will not last.

The weather at the minute is full of extremes no matter where in the world you are while friends in the States post tales of snow drifts and freezing temperatures, those down under complain of the heat as do other friends in different part of the States.  But here in the UK there only seems to be two words needed this winter WET and Windy.

The first two pictures are from my local paper the Huddersfield Examiner and were taken yesterday…

The second picture shows the roof which was torn off a swimming pool by the wind while the kids were having a swimming lesson inside.

But as always the thing to remember is there are always those who have it worse than you…

Of course compared to some countries we are better equipped to deal with these things, we are an island so there are always plenty of boats available…


We can turn anything into an excuse to get romantic if we choose…


Everything stops for a single snow flake but a ‘bit of water’ won’t stop us…


The kids are loving the extra days off school…


And the biggest advantage we have in harsh times….

our sense of humour…


Whatever the weather is like where you are today stay safe and remember it could be worse!

    1. I will be fine as long as I avoid falling tiles from roofs the plus side of being overweight is the extra ballast tends to keep you upright and stop you blowing away lol 😀


      1. I can relate, plus keeps me warm too! hahaha
        Just make sure to keep your eyes and ears open, your rain coat closed, your wellies hole-less, and your row boat handy 🙂


  1. The rain has stopped, the sun is shining. It’s cold but the wind has disappeared so my bin is safe where it is fro now.Let’s hope it stays like this and some of those battered by the floods can start getting back to normal.

    1. Have been lucky my house (touch wood) is unscathed a few doors down have lost their fence and a few houses have lost tiles from the roof, we had a guy blown over outside work last night who needed an ambulance as he bashed his head as he fell but not heard of any deaths up here. Never thought I would say I wish the snow would come and just get winter over with.

      Hugs xx
