Just now, I've been out to bring in the rest of the washing off the line. To discover that it wasn't there - a gust of wind had ripped off the duvet cover (held on with 6 pegs). Ah well, I never liked it anyway.
While looking for it with the torch, I got flattened by a gust of wind. Storm on the way. And yes, the Met Office forecast for here says for tonight:
Southerly winds will increase to gale force 8 to storm force 10, perhaps violent storm force 11, veering westerly overnight.
Never a dull moment here :-)
