It is very unusual for the glass to fall so low to 'Storm' . But for some hours it has been very still outside-the odd flurry of snow but no wind. The BBC Weather terrorists were promising us 70mph winds since midnight and we moved to Code Bravo ( B for Blizzard)-transferring our bedroom from the exposed south western corner where strong winds sound like a seamless procession of 747s as the gale rips through the boundary trees, to a snug little 'dressing room' at the north east end of the house, silent and sheltered until the wind shifts north. But it didn't shift as there was no wind at all and we could have dossed down on the garden seat without having our hair ruffled. I fear the BBC are premature rather than plain wrong and the wind will come.
I think we will stay where we are tonight.
