Yes, Canada has sent us Hurricane Force Winds, due to peak around lunchtime today.
I still managed to cycle in to work this morning, occasionally struggling against strong gusts of wind. I did manage to get extremely wet and cold too, but I have now dried off and changed clothes so I am all snug and warm again.
The journey home will probably be quite exciting as I expect there will be a few fallen trees, bit of fence and garden sheds laying around.
Thanks Canada! After all the great things we did for you!
That was a joke, by the way. When it is all added up I think Britain owes Canada BIG TIME! Dieppe for starters... Sorry, sometimes I just can't control the "inner nerd"!
Late morning saw some high wind and hail. Lunchtime was sunny with little wind. It is now mid afternoon and the wind and rain have returned. Seems the storm/hurricane has lost some of its ferocity on the way in, the strongest wind so far seeming to be 83mph in Cornwall.
