Remnants of Hurricane Katia arrive

What was left of Hurricane Katia arrived today. Our little bit of rain fell in the early hours of the morning before the gale arrived. The early part of the morning wasn't too bad but the wind soon picked up to gale force and remained strong throughout the day. It was mild despite the gale force winds. It was our windiest day since the 22nd May.
From inside the house it had the appearance of a nice day as there was plenty of sunshine. The noise from the wind gave the game away and looking more carefully outside bamboo canes took on an almost horizontal position as their tops were blown about in the stronger gusts of wind. The birds too had problems hanging onto the feeders as they blew wildly about. It will be interesting to see if our runner bean wigwams have stood up to the gales.
