Scary weather

It's an ill wind that blows nobody no good. In this case, a literal wind. We've got gale force winds here and a few hours ago a big branch blew down from a tree that grows in the wet woodland beyond the bottom of our garden. A few minutes ago I went down into the kitchen to make a cup of tea and I commented to G that I could now see the top of the hill with the TV mast again and that if the rest of the tree fell, I'd get all of my old view back. At that moment, right on cue, with a great cracking sound, the rest of the tree split and collapsed!

I'm really glad I did my shopping this morning during a lull in the wind and rain, and we haven't lost our power, so I'm just hiding indoors and waiting for everything to calm down.
