walking a fine line, in my region.
The season has been warm and wet:
enough rain for concern about flooding anyway.

The rivers are unusually high for February, however.
Now the weather is cool, clear and dry,
and I see the water line going down gradually.
This bodes well for this region.

I have an absolute horror of flooding or surges.
My blood freezes to hear about the mudslides and floodwaters
in other parts of the country.

We've had a terrible night. The wind force was fearful, and there was a very loud, shrill whistling (I think it was the wind on the telephone wire attached to our guttering) Neither of us slept a wink. Bangs and crashes - we thought our tiles were off, or our fences down.
So relieved to see no damage this morning (miracle!) but I'm going to need a long nap this afternoon. I feel absolutely rotten!
Sorry about your flooding Steve. We haven't been down to the Wensum yet at our bridge. Bet the water level is high, if not over the banks.

that was how parts of inner & greater Sydney were earlier in the month -
Sydney rains: Record rainfall brings flooding but puts out mega-blaze (10th Feb)
Sydney has been hit by its heaviest rain in 30 years, bringing widespread flooding but also putting out two massive bushfires in New South Wales.
Australia's weather agency said 391.6mm of rain had fallen in the past four days in Sydney, more than three times the average rainfall for February.
About 100,000 homes are without power, and officials have warned flash floods could be life-threatening.
But the rainfall means only 17 fires are still burning across the state ... great pic of a firefighter enjoying the rain. On the wettest & windiest day I saw more dead brollies than I've ever seen!

All our roads are flooded. We're virtually trapped in the house. The only time I've seen it worse than this was on the afternoon of the Boscastle flood in 2004. Eight miles up the road from us at Otterham Station they had 200mm in a day. We got away lightly, with two inches here in 55 minutes.

John sez: "Pretty wild up here in the highlands, but so far we've not had the amount of rain they seem to be getting further south."

Oddly, here just outside Bude we've also had very little rain, 3mm today to be precise. The wind has been pretty bad, but we've had worse many times in our 33 years in our remote house. We've had four weather insurance claims (none for anything else!), all wind-related, one in March 1987, then the Great Storm of October '87, then the Burns Day storm in 1990 (I could write a book...) and then two weeks after that in February 1990. All of those involved roof damage and two a demolished greenhouse. So OK for the last thirty years, in spite of many a big gale...

We've had two lightning strikes, not directly on the house thankfully, both of which struck our telephone line close to the house. One took out all our communications all over one Christmas and New Year and the other blew our wall-mounted phone right off the wall and across the kitchen floor and, scarily, melted and burned the telephone wires to our bedroom extension. Both burned out my computer modems. For several years we've had hardly any thunder and lightning at all, a very noticeable trend.

Ah Robin, we had a new double-glazed window installed last year in our sitting room, and the same problem occurred - a bit of a draught where the plastic frame didn't quite fit the brick wall. So my handy husband got some mastic with a gun type of thing and sealed it beautifully all round the edges, then smoothed it down with a damp cloth. Solved!
(However, mastic always stinks of vinegar for ages afterwards, and we had to have the window open for hours until it 'went off'!)

We have had the most surface water that we have seen here in the eleven years that we have been here. It made those jokes about water-skiing on sloping lakes look possible!

The old rabbit holes were completely flooded in the warren below our house with water spouting up out of them. It has washed the mud away around the gates on our lane though so we might not need the wellies for a couple of weeks.

We have a few leaks through various window surrounds, I manage to find and fix more each time we have a bad storm. The window surrounds are stone slabs that do not easily seal to the windows or the rest of the walls.

Storm Ciara is now in full swing here in Norfolk. There have been numerous power cuts throughout the county (not us, so far) and the strength of the wind is frightening.
My husband decided he'd like to run down to the village shop to get the Sunday paper (mad!) and nearly got blown away.
I'm actually a bit scared and worried about our house and nearby trees and fences. It's going to get worse according to the Met Office.

When I lived in Edinburgh and then Glasgow, the word 'dreich' meant dismal, dreary, wet and depressing weather.

I'm a bit worried this evening, as the TV weather forecast was full of Met Office Warnings about this blooming storm Ciara, which will bring winds of up to 80mph, and will cause damage to property, power cuts and closure of roads, airports and bridges.
I worry about the wooden fences around our property, the roofing tiles, trees falling onto the roads (there are many large oak trees lining the roads everywhere in Norfolk). Also the poor wildlife.
It's due to hit on Saturday evening and continue through Sunday.
Gulp!

Actually there might be distinctions between
"dreich" and the High German "Dreck" (as well as the Yiddish).

When I look further into Scots "dreich" online,
what comes up is
Middle English, Old English, and Old Norse.
And the sense is not just shit or dirt,
but of conditions that have to be patiently endured like an ordeal.

Our weather here in UK is getting weirder and weirder. This morning at 6am, there was a very hard frost. All the rooftops in our village were white, and our lawn was frozen. Probably 2-3 degrees below zero.

But by 11am, the sun was shining, the frost had melted and I was actually sitting on our famous garden bench out the front in just a light jumper, chatting to passers-by with their dogs. I was a bit too warm (!) and caught the sun beautifully on my face.
Sam the Skull (funny old white cat who lives up the road) came to sit with me, and honestly, it was just like summertime!!
