Missed Us

Storm Doris came and went and we certainly missed the worst of the storm. Luckily for us the worst of the storm passed to the south of us.
Temperature, Rainfall & High Wind Speed Records 21-23 February 2017
We didn't escape without any gale force winds though and the rainfall from Wednesday night and Thursday amounted to 12.2mm or 0.48ins. Thursday's rainfall of 9.4mm (0.37ins) made it our wettest day of the year. You can see from the table below that we've had four very windy days in a row.
Based on average wind speed and gust speed both Monday 20th and Wednesday 22nd were worse than storm Doris.
If you have been following the saga of our bird feeding station I'm happy to say that it managed to remain upright through storm Doris.
