sticking nicely here too...
That is my definition of a couple of inches also!
Got pretty heavy up in the tech park
Warning of strong wind from Dennis on Saturday now...
Dennis the Menace … (at least we can pronounce this name without confusion ..)
Centimetres, you mean.
Mid February, middle of the day. I have 16 solar panels on the roof and I'm pulling about 30 watts off them !! The cloud is all but down to the deck, it's raining and blowing hard and I'm having the put the lights on to see. Talk about a dark day …
They don't make Saturdays like they used to …
There has been talk of getting the old Chagford hydro station running again. It was still running in the 1980s, although a visit was awkward, as it was unmanned. At the time, it was administered by the CEGB's South West Region in Bristol. I seem to remember that it had a capability of about 38kW - the " the hydroelectric plant can produce a steady 20 watts of electricity a day - enough to power 40 houses" comment in the article below is probably a bit of "journalistic (mis)interpretation"...

Yes I think the journalist doesn't quite understand. '20 watts of electricity' doesn't make much sense.
I could probably get more energy out of a hamster in a running mill, especially if I jabbed it with a cattle prod now and again.
Ha, beat you. We're currently putting 103 watts into the batteries. Not quite sure how it's that high though with the cloud being what it is. Still it all ads up at the end of the day.
After nearly two days of continuous rain, it's stopped !!!
But ……. a strange very bright yellow ball has appeared in the sky !!! …. IT'S A SIGN, IT'S A SIGN ...
We're all DOOMED … DOOMED I SAY !!!
(F*** pubs on a Sunday dinnertime, it's just bringing Armageddon nearer … and to quote an old Spike Milligan joke … "Armageddon outa here.")
(I might just turn the solar panels off to avoid them being damaged by the Yellow Ball God.)
Ampleforth Drive area looking a bit perilous today
Taken yesterday in Ayrshire as Storm Dennis passed by. Is it any wonder legends of sea monsters and demons got established ….
Evidence of a torrential flood, with erosion causing a landslide across a thoroughfare.
No fatalities have been reported.
Still passable with care.
Having had the greenhouse automatic windows open all day yesterday and got down the town and back unscathed last night, I was surprised to see how much water must have arrived at some point in the night.
