That the weather scares the hell out of me.
The wind is incredible. A low pressure system has developed to the west of us and is galloping south eastward. Winds are hitting close to 100kmh. The whole house is flexing and bending - that is a good thing cos not flexing would be verra bad indeed. But I can't sleep from the noise and the feeling of the wind hitting the house. Also since the place is nowhere near weathertight, there's a lot of drafts and noises from the temporary "ceiling."
I've never experienced a cyclone or typhoon or hurricane. I hope this is as close as I get!
Here comes another blast - you can hear it coming. Yargh. Time to plug the old clock radio in and play the radio, see if that helps block some of the sound... Hope DH didn't really want the beer bottles he left out the front cos they just blew over.
PS we are still here, 8 hours after I posted the above. The house is still here, the wonky fence is still "upright" and nothing blew away! A miracle. 8-)
