Yesterday was MEGAWET and MEGAWINDY.
I eventually shut the shutters on the westward side of the house where the weather comes from, just in case.
I thought of that day in 2009 when one Saturday we sat and listened to the constant wind, hearing occasional roof-tiles move, wondering what we would find when we could emerge from the house. That year one house in our area lost ALL its roof and another had a tree crush half its roof. Our garden fences fell, giving us the rather nice "jardin public" between our houses for a couple of weeks.
This weather wasn't nearly as bad. In fact it wasn't even classed as a storm. Just gusts (rafales).
This morning all seems OK. No fences down. No trees fallen.
