Ophelia very bad indeed.

16 October 2017 12:45:46

It is dreadful so it is. Maybe I am getting it very bad cos I am only about 3miles as the crow flies  from Cork harbour.The south wind is blowing directly from there and every tree bush and plantis bent horizontal. To date the trees are staying put long may it last. Dog Meg is scared too and barking at the wind. Maisie just went to bed!

Hope you all stay safe, gardens are least important today it is people who matter.

Tom Jones has disappeared for the moment! She was in the garage and is now somewhere down the scrub swearing unmercifully! Ive lost half a chestnut tree and possibly more to come. Its unmercifully windy. I think maisie is very wise! Take care!

Poor Elizabeth! Take care of yourself and your lovely pets! Maybe if you put the radio on loud it will drown out the wind for poor Meg! I'm sitting looking out at the wind! Puss also disappeared - I was going to bring him in but he obviously knows somewhere safer to sit it out!

I have heard Elizabeth on the radio that your area in Cork harbour got it bad. They say this morning that a tree has blocked the road into the Holy ground. However there will be dust on the road before long. I am about 40 miles as the fly crows from the sea. It is not as bad here as it was a few years ago.

Oh ELizabeth I hope its run its course past you by now. And that there's no structural damage to your home. You are so right in saying what matters on days like this are people. Trees and shrubs can be replanted and gardens redesigned and we will enjoy doing that when we need to. 

Take care and stay inside, and hopefully enjoy what views you have.

I hope the worst is over for you by now, Elizabeth. I'm in Italy, really lucky as we flew out yesterday evening. Take care!

Hope all is well for you today, Elizabeth. It was a horrible storm and like yourself plants were being battered around all day long and even after dark. Maisie is lucky that she has someone to look after her, a hard time for any animal. We have had powered restored at lunchtime which was very quick.

Thanks Mary and glad that you and Paddy are ok.  One tree down and the poor plants look like they have a hangover. I too got my power back within 5 hours which was great. Just sent an email to the ESB thanking them.

Glad all is ok again Elizabeth, my plants took a good battering here too but just and echium and Acacia had to be re-staked
