Hold On To Your Chickens....


I have tied down the Ukrainian village this afternoon in preparation for the " Big Jude Storm"
Which hits later tonight
If the hype is true
Wish  us luck!

  1. Was just reading about that storm and you and your critters were the first thing that popped into my head! Home everyone weathers the storm safely.Big excitement here is a 20 degree or so drop in temps forecast for tomorrow. They have been saying that for 2 weeks so I will believe it when it happens.Good luck to everyone over the pond.

  3. Absolutely wishing you, Chris, and all the critters a safe sail through the storm. Just read about it - it looks bad. A sunny but cool (31F) here in the US Midwest.

  9. Fingers crossed John that all our prep is for nothing, ive been posting the pictures so family in Canada can see we are ok. Don't forget to lock the cat flap so the cat cant get out!

    Dead still here it was windy at 12 noon. Battening down the hatches.

    See you on the other side!

  10. Take care John. Batten down the hatches and all that! It is begin to whip up a bit here now so I am in for the night.

  11. Here on the south coast my main worry is that if my pussies have to do their business indoors they use the litter trays (at least one of them has always refused). Now the possible result really IS scary.

    I trust you've brought ALL your menagerie inside - in antediluvian ark style.

  12. Put a few scotch eggs in your pocket while you batten down the hatches. Best of luck. Deb

  13. Chicks and ducks and geese better scurry. Hope it doesn't turn out to be as expected!

  14. Dire warnings here in Cornwall too. So far today, we've had normal autumn weather - breezy, showery, cloudy. I've tidied away all movable objects in the garden, but I'm finding it hard to believe the hype, to be honest.

  15. Stay safe even last night I was scared. Here's hoping its not going to be as bad as they say!

  16. It was rough here around 4 pm, but seems quiet now. Hope the people down south will be OK - lots of vibes going out for them

  17. Northern Ireland is apparently being spared the worst ravages of the Big Blow. I hope all the animals get through it okay. If gale-force winds are scary to us humans, I imagine animals must find it even scarier.

  18. We've been in the garden, putting everything that isn't nailed down, in the shed ..... just hope the shed doesn't get blown away!! It is brick so it should be OK. Our back brick wall blew down in the Great Storm of 1987 so, I don't take anything for granted.
    Hoping that everything is OK for you both and for all of the animals and their homes. See you on the other side !!!! XXXX

  19. I am light on my feet. Nearly was blown off them earlier today. It's not too bad but beware of those bastard air pockets. High rise buildings are good that way. One moment you don't worry about calcium in your bones wearing thin, the next your hat flies away. And make sure you look left and right when crossing the road. Particularly when you have all your locks (hair) obscuring the view. Wish I'd done some panic buying (Friday) when there was still time.

    Good luck, John. Hold tight. May your roof not fly off and feathers stay where they belong.

  20. Hold on to your hat John, and batten down the hatches.
    Wishing you the best of luck, fur and feathers alike.

  21. The trouble with British weather is you just don't know. I have tied down what I think might go flying and now am just sort of waiting and pottering about inside.

    Good Luck Chaps . . . . see you on the other side.....

  27. I just google-mapped you to see exactly where you are - it's something I always wondered but was too lazy to investigate 'till now, when I'm worried St. Jude is going to Mary Poppins you and your great menagerie all the way to France. On the map it looks like Trelawnyd is fairly close to the sea. How long a drive is it to get there? (And I hope you manage to get through the storm unscathed.)

  29. No better place to be that inside and surrounded by those you love. Remember, if you see Daryl Dixon in your chicken coop, things were worse than they expected.

  30. Wishing all Ukrainians a quiet and safe night. x

  31. Rather late to the party but hope you all fare well. I know how nerve wracking it is to be worried about the creatures when the weather is shitty. Thinking blasé weather thoughts!

  32. Batten down the hatches.....here in Kansas we just click our heels together and hope for the best.....there's no place like home! I'll check you when I get up in the am.

  33. Hoping that all's well at your place.

  34. Wishing you all well and hope you remain safe. I hope this isn't the start of the zombie apocalypse!

  35. Oh My Goodness... this reminds me of the Santa Anna Winds that blow off the desert past Palm Spring into Orange County. The air is so hot ! In 1993 parts of Southern California was on fire and some idiot decided to start a fire in Laguna Cannon and the winds too it and ran with it. One of the first "big" California fires. I lost my home, but saved the children and the bunnies. My stupid x let the cat out and we never found him.
    Hope you survive the winds and all Creatures Great and Small make it through the night.

    cheers, parsnip
