Same here no dementia but already the wind is causing rattling on the roof which always makes me uneasy due to potential damage.

Same here - I always dread high winds and can't sleep until weather settles a bit. Let's hope Dudley doesn't last long and no power cuts please (I am all electric).

Its been very windy here today and I'm constantly checking my fence because of my little dog. I had to go out earlier as my wheelie bin had taken flight.

There's quite a noise outside now! How is it for those in other parts of the country - I'm in Essex. I imagine it's worse further north. A bit frightening - I hope our big tree doesn't come down!

When I was a teacher, we dreaded windy days as the kids would always be ‘ratty’ after playtime. Outdoor cats can also get quite flighty in windy weather.

I agree - my cats hate it.

I live in a small modern boxy house but when we get a storm, the wind whistles round the rafters as if it was an old haunted mansion... Which I quite like, as long as the roof is still there in the morning.

Eunice looks worse on Friday - weather man said 'could be the worst storm for decades.' Plus a heap of snow in Scotland...

I have just heard a weather report on TV saying that now that Dudley has died down we must be prepared for Eunice! Well here in north Scotland Dudley is still loudly making presence felt, lots of damage to property, trees, etc and still fearsome gusts. Forecast worse storm (Eunice) to come so no sleep tonight again - being on my own I dread this!

A good friend of mine is called Eunice - she is getting a lot of jokey comments at the moment!

It's not too bad here near Cambridge right now the garden fence is holding up and it's pretty old. I am hoping it won't be worse tomorrow 🤞.

My daughter is in Edinburgh I'll have to ask her what it's like there. She's pretty used to the snow as has lived there several years.

Sounds awful. I don’t think there has been as much damage this time in Dundee area as there was with the other recent storms. Just now we have beautiful sunshine and a moderate wind. Not sure that will last though. Looks like Eunice may bring snow here tomorrow!

Stay safe.

That’s me on the south coast!
