We may be having or going to have another wind blown autumn. First ex hurricane Ophelia hit, mainly Ireland but the affect on us was more in the colour of the sky and sun.
The sky turned an amazingly warm colour, the sun went from yellow through orange then red to pink. The next pic was taken by me and to be honest does not do the colours justice. It reminded me of when we had the partial eclipse a few years ago,
The following pic I pinched from the BBC website which shows a better colour.
This was all due to the sand Ophelia had picked up from the Sahara!
Then with in a few days, along came 'Storm Brian' (pic from of a friend on Facebook) now Brian has been very blustery for us personally.
This got me thinking, our storms our named and go in alphabetical order so when was Storm Aileen? Apparently it was around September 12th. I must have missed it, September was pretty full on here!
Its probably a bit early but we have covered the Arid bed.
It was a matter of having too, as again I have a hectic couple of weeks and had the weather changed I would have been caught on the hope. So in good Girl Guide fashion 'Be Prepared'!
I have also had a wood delivery, half the load we had last year. Though it still looks a lot.
But once in the log store you can see quite a difference this was last year a good couple of hours work which I did all alone.
Compared with this, which was done with the help of my daughter and her husband and took about 30 mins!
A bit more manageable and easier to keep dry!
Back to the topic of this blog post 'Wind Blown' here are a few pics
Till later, take care x
