Re: Weather!

Snow poles went up this week. Rainy turning to some sleet overnight for us Sunday/Monday. Hopefully OH will be okay driving Monday - winter tyre change is booked for Tuesday!

Yes, I noticed them too today, in the middle of town. LOL. A waste of money for the µ of snow which will turn into slosh within minutes.

The day I made an appointment to get my winter tires mounted.
It's long proven that I'm psychic but I'm getting better on details, it seems. LOL.

Yeah, same here. Shutting down the PC just in case we get an electrical spike or failure.

We had about 5 minutes of sun before it got really dark. There was some snow after hail in the middle of all the thunder and lightning. Now it's kind of dark and quiet.

It's like the end of the world here! Black skies, horizontal rain, thunder, wind.

Where'd that come from, then?

Re: Weather!

Saw the landscape disappearing into whatever was heading my way so decided to close all the shutters up a bit earlier than usual. Just as well I did - if I'd had to do it in that lot I'd have gotten drenched! I beat it by about 5 minutes.

Re: Weather!

Jeeezus I've never seen wind like this here before.. Serious windage here in VD.

My PET recycling was full and it blew over.. The contents are now spread throughout the neighbourhood.. Keeping an eye on the trampoline now.

Get off it! It is unsafe!
