February 2020 – Extreme Weather and Stories to Tell at no.fifty6
Posted on 29th February 2020 by Julie and David Thomson in General News.
February often blows in as a ”soft” month, not quite winter, not quite spring. This February has not been soft – wild winds, rain, rain, rain, some sunshine and even finishing the month on some snow. But, always the wind.
Storm Ciara blew across Mash Valley and dislodged 3 of our roof tiles, soon fixed and no other damage. Most of the rain has come at night so it hasn’t deterred our hardy visitors from their explorations. The fields are very soggy but new growth is here, even the trees are budding as the temperatures despite the wild elements, are mild. Apart from the last 2 days, which have been icy cold with a fall of snow, now cleared by the rain.
And as always at No.fifty6, there are stories to tell, as we remember 2 particular soldiers this month in the company of their ancestors..
