No, I’m not talking about a dog’s nose (unfortunately).
Storm Dudley hit us this afternoon and the sky was black. It was chucking it down with rain and we could hardly see across the road.
The wind was pretty fierce too, and Hubby was anxious about his CB aerial, so donned the full yellow kit and braved the storm like Scott of the Antarctic.
‘I may be some time……….’ he said.
Watching out of the back window in case he got into trouble, he managed to disconnect the top part of the aerial and lay it down on the ground without that much difficulty, and when he got back indoors, it was only the yellows that were wet.
Looking out of the back window, we could see a thick band of black sky with orange and red behind it. The storm has literally gone over us and now passed out to sea.
This is such a contrast to this morning when it was beautifully sunny and warm, even for February.
We walked up into town as previously mentioned in my Today is………. post , but no kits were available at the one chemist and because they are sharing a pharmacist, the other outlet wouldn’t be open until 1pm. This was around 10am so we came home along the prom having several puppy fixes on the way and throwing balls for Tash and Lucifer who saw us and came running at full pelt. Great stuff.
We noticed a car down on the beach actually parked on the shoreline and wondered what was going on. It was from the Seal Sanctuary up the road and they were releasing a seal back into the sea. Wonderful. I hope it’s OK as the sea would be pretty rough just now.
Hubby’s Covid kit arrived this afternoon and was delivered by a very damp and soggy postie. Tomorrow we are having a field trip to enquire about renewing our passports. Hubby’s has already expired and mine does at the beginning of next year. Seems you need one of these to renew your driving licence.
