Guess what I am doing this weekend?
Well--- it won't be riding.
We are experiencing some horrific wind up in Scotland. It was well forecast but basically west Scotland was closed down for the day. Winds in excess of 80mph and as the day progressed gusts up to 120-then 135 and then 165 mph recorded. All the time everyone was advised not to travel and not to venture out.
Those winds were not as high down here but it has been a bit windy. Few trees down and plenty of debris on the roads. Got home in the dark and it is not nice out. Had to go down the garden and the bottom of the garden is strewn with rubbish from the other houses in the area. Looks like someone has lost a lot of roofing felt off and extension or flat roof somewhere.
Just about to come in and went to the shed and got slapped in the face by something when I was about 10ft away. Another lump of roofing felt and it stung.
At least I know where the roofing felt has come from now. Better get down the hardware store tomorrow for a few rolls- some mastic and a bag of roofing cleats.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
