    It's pretty much the same here in Benidorm Mo. A very warm and sunny afternoon, then it got overcast, chilly and very windy in no time at all. It is dark now and the wind is gusting quite strongly, we have also had a smattering of rain. Not enough to dampen the spirits of the Funsters though,who will no doubt be out on the town tonight.

    Brisey.

    Storm warning between 3am and 7am in the morning in the Costa Del Sol.

    Christmas day morning was pretty bad here so I hope this will be kinder.

    For those in the UK all I can say is a gale whilst in a house is somewhat less of a threat than in a MH or caravan with the fixed awning or drive away erected.


    :Cool:

    Been a lovely day at Javea, the wind arrived about an hour ago, :Wink: been informed it was 50 mph on Jane's apps. :RollEyes::Laughing: hardly any rain.
    It will start again at 2200 until 0100, and then looks good for the rest of the week. :thumb:

    She has gone off for a shower, if she does not come back, the apps wrong and the weather is worse than she said. :Eek!::BigGrin: Bob.

    One quick downpour and the wind did blow...

    I was in the shower when I heard almighty gusts of wind...

    Came out of the shower and mine and a load of others "Dishes" were down... but not in the normal docking place... LNB & other bits all caught up in the roof rails.. :Doh::Sad:

    Got the broom and stood on a wall and poked and thumped it out and managed to get it up and put it down properly...

    And not expecting much to happen this morning.... presses button up goes dish and locks on to Internet Sat... :thumb:

    Whole site looks like a bomb has hit it... :Smile:

    But another lovely sunny morning... :BigGrin:

    And I still have internet... :thumb:
