this weather lately is Well Freaky!
Where in the UK do you live YT? I know, central, but where, my geography is bad, very bad. Yes the weather freaks me out, just hearing the howling wind outside is terrible. I am off back to the tropics(I wish!)

It's 22 degrees...forecast Lake Effect Snow. The snow may be heavy and end late tomorrow Saturday. Sunday should be better. No snow in the forecast. It's soup and homemade bread time for us.

It's 32C here today and very humid, lots of rain in the middle of Australia [most unusual] and still plenty of bush fires down south. Victoria has had over 1 million hectares [almost 4,000 sq miles] burnt out so far. We have fire fighters from New Zealand and Canada helping to try and control them but it's pretty hopless, they're just saving the towns in the path of the fires.

Constance, Germany is still okay... some regions went off power, heard from a friend in another forum they didn't had power for 31h...

The German Railway "Bahn" stopped their transport in whole G, we had a friend stranded at Hannover station on her way to Berlin, she stayed with us for the night.. well, long time, no see, but I would have liked a better reason for this

here at the Kronsberg a few houses lost their outer roofs... the houses are topped with concrete and over this there is the Isolation with a Aluskin to protect against rain.. and this outer part got lost.
Today the tilers are on the house, trying to fix something and make it sure against the next storm approaching...

I'll add a picture of our yard, middle left is the Aluskin und middle top the wodden body.. the yellow spots are the isolation...
