It’s a lovely blue sky in the picture isn’t it? Even the water looks. Relatively calm. Actually, it was quite breezy, the closest flag doesn’t look like it’s not that windy, but the flags a bit further down a really flying.
Yesterday, it was windy with heavy rain, it was really rough. I really love watching it rain and the wind blow. Sometimes, if it is not too bad, I even like to go for a walk in the rough weather, as mad as it seems.
Of course, it’s easy to sit back and enjoy the rough weather, forgetting that it doesn’t mean the same thing to other people. It appears that yesterday was one of those special days. Watching the forecast the forecaster gave a quick review of yesterday’s weather. We had our very own Tornado Alley. A wide corridor running north north east-ish of, for the UK, extreme weather. Looking at the map, the eastern edge of the bad weather corridor (and it must haves been bad, we were miles away, and it was rough here) is very close to my friend, another radio amateur.
90 mile an hour winds were recorded. This was sufficient to demolish Dave’s antenna setup. Now, that is something that we all dread, but to actually have it happen is very distressing. I just hope he is able to get it fixed quickly.
