Hows the weather ?
« on: July 12, 2016, 07:00:05 PM »

I am currently enduring some of the WORST weather i think ive ever seen in 36 years. The current temperature is 4 degrees Celsius with an expected high of 9.

Last night I lost two massive Cyprus trees that sit on the boundary line and two of my hay feed sheds have been dragged over 10 m by the antarctic winds that we are currently receiving. it is expected to snow in the area that i live , which in 36 years it has never done so.

One of my feed sheds has all my hard feed in it, cannot wait to open it tonight to see the state of the inside of it. The other is hay only, which I can deal with.

All the horses are fine which is the main thing, There is a fair bit of damage to the boundary fence , good thing is that my TBs cant get out as the tree is massive. Minis Live up near the house.

These winds are expected to continue right through today and tonight , so my fingers are crossed that we dont get anymore damage.  ;pray

I hate strong wind - really terrifies me as so much damage can result. We have had many (unusually) strong wind sessions here over last winter and this spring.  In fact one session earlier this year lifted one of our corrugated dome barns (30x16')  off the ground with one gust and with the next gust took it airbourne, twisted it round and sent it over the fence depositing it in the field below.  Luckily it was  shed used to house the quads and other useful bits of equipment and not animals! Hope your food stuff etc has survived and that the wind has now completely died down.

Well, here at the BEACH.... yes BEACH.... on my annual vacation the weather is generally delightful, but with storms and lightning, but just having a rest with my children and grandchildren makes me forget the weather!!

Enjoy your vacation Diane :)

Weather has calmed down here , we even had a sunny weekend , temps reaching 16-17 degrees Celsius.  Was able to get out in the garden and repot alot of my trees and bamboo thats waiting to be planted into the ground once the soil has some nutrients put into it.

Hope the storms have stopped for you now Lnight89 :)

Nope, not sharing, just got done with a week of showers in the middle of haying season; so keeping out sunshine so we can get through haying.  [And, for me second round of staining the house.   Last year was the first coat of stain on raw wood siding, this year is round two (it's going a little more quickly, but I still hate "painting").]
