Yew're Shattered.

Yew're Shattered.

What a day today has been weatherwise started off a beautiful sunny morning and I thought great will get in a bit of gardening. By 11:30 the sun was gone and it was a bit windy good day for drying washing, by 12:30 was quite stormy and then at 1:30 it started to rain in came the washing. Gusting winds and lashing rain the garden was taking a real battering so any gardening was off the cards other than a quick look at Garden.ie before traching at 3:30pm sitting listening to the howling wind outside things were rattling around then there was a thump so I went out to see what had taken off in case it would cause any damage everything on the step at the door to the terrace seemed okay but on venturing out there shattered was one of my Bill and Ben terracotta pots, the wind had lifted off the corner of the basement terrace this pot would have been quite heavy I'm sure tomorrow I'll find it's not the only thing to have been broken in the gales.

I'm sure that wind will do a lot of damage around the country.

Gosh, lucky it didn't cause anybody any injury. I hope you don't have too many more casualties.

If its not the cold thats doing damage, its the wind. The sooner we see the back of this weather the better.
