It’s blustery alright. My coffee almost spilled with the van rocking and the vent cover for the fridge blew off (not that that is the end of the world seeing as it never works anyway), so I moved from Walney into Barrow and drove round looking for a quiet spot. I’d got into town and the bike cover did a runner too. I was lucky enough to get it back, but it had snapped the two bungees holding it on. After 5 minutes it was obvious it wasn’t going to go back on so I stowed it away and moved off. They’ve got bridges shut and roads closed and buildings losing their roofs and all sorts.
I finally found a quiet spot near B n Q and I can barely feel the wind here apart from the really bad gusts so at least I’ll have a peaceful night.
