Ciara and Dennis


Storms Ciara and Dennis have brought high winds and much rain to the UK. As I write this, Dennis is raging war in my Hertfordshire garden, and the noise of wind and rain is quite menacing. Last weekend, I was both admiring and fearing Ciara, as she tormented Scotland.

Kayakers are looking forward to a wider river and more challenges than normal

The following day, the ducks were relishing their expanded territory, and the humans had given up any idea of a picnic on the benches.

  1. Sad sights! There are no floods here, but storms oh yes! Last night I had hard time sleeping due to the stormy wind – again. It seems that along with the climate chnge the storms get more frequent.

  2. Sorry for such stormy weather, and hope they will move on soon! This looks quite bad:( and thank you for keeping us up to date at All Seasons with how the UK fares. Stay safe and warm coming week!

  3. Living near a river really makes you understand the life of floods. Snow pack above us has already given us a potential of major flooding when it starts to melt. Be safe.
