Storm Katie

Walking around the Lewes area this week I have noticed considerable damage, presumably as a result of Storm Katie. The winds didn't keep me awake unlike other storms this winter yet damage seems to have been surprisingly severe in places. I have seen a complete garden shed and contents laying in a heap next to a road, a 50m length of hawthorn hedge completely missing and many trees snapped approx 3m above ground rather than being uprooted. Was it a different type of wind?

Yes it was foreign wind. They're the worst.

It seem 9 out of 10 of these predicted storms / hurricanes / blizzards etc turn out to be either Slightly Windy or A Bit Cold. Sells a lot of newspapers though.

The Ouse upstream

"Revolutionary" in the sense of game-changing. Unique in the world. Like the NHS. Both are very special and hugely successful... more
I like the walk along the ouse to Hamsey church, the view from the top of the Castle, Pells pool, the antique shops and boot fair, the lion in the window of the 15c bookshop, keere street
