No internet yesterday and a big storm hits our coast

We were promised wild storms yesterday and the prediction even hit the Irish news. Our son rang to see if we were okay as their news had reported a lot of damage. At that point, we’d had some rain but that was all. Later, on our news, we saw rooves being torn off buildings and slung across power lines. More than 60,000 homes are without power. It is still a bit blustery here. We haven’t been down to measure the rain yet. We had no internet at all yesterday but luckily we had other things to do. I’m bound to miss a few of your discussions but thankfully I’m back on board now. During the ‘downtime’ I sorted through some photo and found this one of a spider web in the bush. I wonder how they fare in a storm.

That's a lovely spider web. Have you seen the move Aracnaphobia? There is a spider web in a barn scene that takes up much of the barn's interior. Quite the movie and it had folk lore woven in which made it much better than the average scare you!! movie.

@moffittjc The one that hit the coast was a once in a decade storm. They never seem to be really bad where we are. We're half an hour inland and sheltered a bit by the bushland around. It depends a bit from which direction the winds and rain come from.
