my oh my~did it howl and blow?
i went to bed after watching 'wonky willie' and the wind had just really started to pick up over that hour~i wound up my radio and tuned into radio 4 to wait for the shipping forecast~i love it, it's so relaxing!
the wind became louder and louder and the wind howled down the bedroom chimney and through the open window, my curtains billowing.
i think i slept on and off for about two hours and then just gave up and lay in the dark listening to the noise of mother nature in all her howling glory~it sounded as if we had a continuous line of trains thundering down the lane and i have to admit i did wonder how long it would be until the windows came in and once or twice the noise was so much my heart was beating like crazy.
about seven o'clock things settled down but within two hours had started up again~right now i am sitting looking out of our front window wondering how long it will be until the ariel on the cottage opposite will fall off the roof or when the telephone cables, which are swinging wildly, will fall.
out the back the big evergreens and wytch elm are leaning over at such an angle swampy is wondering whether to move pippin to a safer place down the lane.
and according to the news it will get worse this afternoon.
i am thinking of going for a short walk a bit later, even if its just ten minutes up the lane~i love the feeling of being out in such wild weather and i really feel in need of some fresh air.
