Hi all
I am just in from saving as many plants as I could. Our fence just blow down, flattened my rockery my man made for me and all..... I am devastated! Is there anyone else here in Galway who has had trouble as a result of this wind today?

Galway here. Smile
I seem to have got off easy.
From a brief walk around the garden I have a lot of perennial plants with snapped stems, but these were going to be gone one the frosts arrived anyway.
They'll be back again in the spring, so not too worried.
The day is not over yet so potential for more damage.
Stay indoors if you can Chocolate_Daisy to avoid any flying fence panels.

hi James
I have the day off and I was looking forward to a sleep in with the wild wind outside. Its mental, we have a tiny space but the wind is battering it. I guess I will have more to do- which I was recently looking at garden and feeling itchy to do MORE! MORE! But there wasnt even a pansie to lop off.... now I have a new project hahahaha

are you in the city center? we are in Bohermore

Im Katie By the way nice to meet you!

East Galway, countryside here.
The wind must be building up more speed by funnelling up the main street in Bohermore. Wink

oh dear stonehead
it is certainly blowing alot out there I have had to tie the fence with rope for kayaking and then pull it through the door and loop it around the handle and lock it... and I still have to go and tighten it every hour its mad Smile

and as for you James! The wind tunnel on bohermore is a force to be reckoned with... I am just staying inside and eating toast with this new kerrygold honey mixed spread. very nice!- Puttin on my winter coat- plumping up for the cold ahead hahaha
