    Red Weather Warning Issued (Wales / North England)

    BBC Weather - Red warning issued for wind

    Batten down the hatches for the 100mph winds!

    It's gone pretty mental here and I am in the South...

    Mmm, we got the first snow of the year near Durham, last night.
    Didn't last very long, like.

    Very blowy and wet here but nothing to get worked up about [could be some flooded roads and enforced but that is about it: Other places have it much worse]

    The (freezing) rain is coming down sideways here already and the wind is getting up!

    I hope we don't get any power outages during the night or any major water leaks!!!!

    Yup. We're getting the tail end of the super-high winds here. Our mini-buses have stopped using the sea-front today as the wind was knocking them all over the place!

    We've got flickering power, roof leaks, the string has snapped on our flag pole so the flag is all over the place, our drains are slowly but surely filling up. The last few days, our water pumps in the boiler house (its underground, so it fills with water if you don't have pumps on) failed and we had a foot of water in there...

    We've had to lock one set of doors shut since the wind was blowing them open all the time, and most of the 1960's wooden windows have driving rain coming through. Thankfully the sun has now come out during a break in the clouds.

    Wind picking up in Liverpool, too. I can see the poplars in the park opposite taking a bit of a hit. It's also triggering my asthma (and I'm still indoors!). I can't abide windy weather.

    Our flag pole is bending all over the place - our site manager wanted a bunch of us to go out and take it down! I've said no as I don't want to be killed a flag pole flapping around and braining me!
