Did you buy a new expensive piece of equipment or just go ahead and buy a whole company?

No new purchases. It's probably just because I'm off work tomorrow so I could have stayed up late!

Regards

Although the gale force winds lessened during the night, they are still gusting around 48 mph.

There have been a few trees blown down, one of them falling right across a country road that we use quite often :eek:

The road is completely blocked at the moment, so we don't have any plans to go out driving anywhere today.

I think we will stay in the comfort and safety of our home, at least until the winds die down.

Much ado about nothing last night - maybe 3mm of rain and no lightning. Cloudy now and supposed to stay cloudy for a few days. :Boo:

No rain but high winds and humidity so we are currently experiencing very poor transparency.

Still partly to mostly cloudy with the jet stream in excess of 50m/s in my area. Friday looks promising though.
