Storm Force

Old Meg had somewhat of a radical haircut yesterday
Given the cold snap
I have fashioned a Margaret Rutherford-esque cape for her walk today.

Another storm with gusts of 100 miles an hour is expected later today
Oh bollocks!
Just heard it has been upgraded to a red warning storm

  4. It's blowing a gale here in Southern Ireland today. Best advice for everybody is to keep inside and keep warm.

  6. With Winnie's undergarments & Meg's cape I'm wondering if you are practising for the next Great British sewing bee

  7. I think she needs a hat as well to keep her little ears warm. Crazy weather.

  10. Have you thought about converting the hen houses so that they float? I thought the weather was down to climate change and not gay marriage? Who will they blame next? Those of us living in sin? Weirdos? Marriage wreckers? Blimey I expect to be struck by lightening at any moment

  13. 100 miles an hour? You'd best weigh down the chicken coops.

  15. I got a good chuckle out of that last photo! But I had no idea the storm was going to be so violent. I feel a bit bad about chastising you yesterday! Ah well, at least I know your solid stone cottage will be a safe haven.

  16. Red storm warning up here too - do you think it will warrant a mention on anything but the local news?

  18. Old Meg is just too cute! Winds just up here -- can feel it through the triple glazing... :-(

  19. Hold tightly onto Meg's lead when she's out. If that wind gets under her cape she could end up hang-gliding.

  20. 'They' did it again!!

  21. This nasty weather is getting tiresome, isn't it?
    Meg looks cute!

  22. Meg's look: What.Have.You.Done.

  23. Better make sure the thatch is firmly attached! :-) x

  25. Poor Meg. But nice cape! Wishing safety and warmth for all the residents, man or furred or feathered.

  26. I hope that you and the cast of Trelawnyd are safe and well in this weather John. x

  27. Meg's cape looks just the thing for this weather. We've had the storm from hell today here too.

  28. She looks so chic Miss Meg!
    I am with you on hating on this weather. Here in NJ we are about to get between 6-10 inches of snow while the Southern states are currently dealing with snow and ice which they are not accustomed to. I long to go out side without being bundled and looking like a giant tick! Stay safe my dear.

  29. Meg has one of the sweetest faces I've ever seen. :)
    Hope you're staying safe and warm, John.

  30. We're holding steady down here in SW France. Just rain. No flooding. At the moment. Hope you and yours stay wrapped up and warm. Might you make a lovely little Meg-type cape for yourself ao things keep warm? Vx

  31. Meg looks just like her namesake! I can't believe the weather you've been experiencing. That's the last time I comment on our "cyclonic winds." 100 mph! Hope you don't suffer any damage and that all goes well in "the village."

  32. The gays are doing it over there too,I see! Massive snow/rain storm here tomorrow!! Yikes this friggin' winter!!
    I love MR!!

  33. THANKS ALL
    it's 22.10pm and the winds are just starting to subside just a little
    I checked the battened down Ukrainian village at 18.00 ( the height of the storm) and only one henhouse had lost its tile roof ( 16 hens were all sat quietly side by side inside)

  35. What keeps your roof from blowing off? When I lived with cold and snow, I put a blue sweater on Faulkner the Collie. He loved it. It matched my coat.

    Love,
    Janie

  36. Hope you weathered your storm John. Love the cape on Meg. But why such a severe haircut in winter? Klingons?
