Windy weather - but not here

At the flea market today it was beautiful weather; warm, sunny and only the slightest breeze. And yesterday, while colder and with a bit stronger breeze, was almost equally pleasant and I got out in the garden for the first time this year. Meanwhile, elsewhere - electricity was cut to more than 30,000 homes last night after falling trees damaged power lines across the north of England. Engineers from CE Electric UK worked through the night to restore power to homes across parts of Yorkshire, Northumberland and County Durham. Power lines were brought down as strong winds, some gusting up to 70mph, caused disruption across the region. Staff, who were hampered by many road closures, were now finding it easier to reach remote locations with equipment, the power company said. The high winds blew over at least 10 lorries on the A1 and buildings and roofs were damaged. Leeds Bradford International Airport was also affected by the strong winds, with some planes delayed or diverted by the weather.
