    Storm Aileen ? 13th Sep 17 at 9:17 AM
    Good morning. Have you seen storm aileen ?
    I listened to the weather forecast last night and expected
    it to be like Florida when i got up this morning.

    I think it may have rained a bit, 'cos the pavement is wet, and it's freezy cold.
    But no signs of any storm.
    How about you ?

    It was blowing a gale here last night - it woke me up!
    Still windy this morning but nowhere near as bad...no rain though.

    I didn't hear anything, but came out at 7am this morning to go to work and saw my lovely huge Sumac tree was lying in the road,... have a man with a chain saw coming at 12 to remove it, :0(

    Kept me awake last night, blew a panel out of the new fence my neighbour had put up between our gardens! The fence I built this summer on the other side of my garden is still standing, thankfully.

    I've got 2 little trees in the front garden, one in each corner. I don't like them getting much bigger than sbout 8' and they were about 12', so i was chopping them down a couple of weeks ago. I think this weekend i'll start in the back, got several fruit trees there, now it's towards the end of the season i'll chop them down.

    Squally winds all night, still blowing now. My ground cover sheets broke free of one of their anchors. A short power cut. All fences intact. Garden plants have survived.

    Not so much the storm but it seems that the rain has swung back round this way and is hitting us from the east and the temp has dropped accordingly

    I'm sorry but everytime I see the thread title I read Storm Alien
    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...
